Headline Goes Here

UPPER DARBY, Pa. - Authorities say a man wanted for questioning in the strangulation death of his ex-girlfriend in southeastern Pennsylvania is in jail in Jacksonville.

Police in Upper Darby, just outside of Philadelphia, had been seeking the man since the body of 38-year-old Masako Griffin was found Sunday.

Upper Darby Police Department Superintendent Michael Chitwood said the 38-year-old man arrived at the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office in the dead woman's car shortly after her body was found.

Officials said he was held on a driving under the influence count, and Upper Darby police accused him of auto theft and of violating a protection from abuse order obtained by the woman.

Chitwood said police had been called to the home a number of times following domestic disputes. He said officials hoped to bring the man back to Pennsylvania soon.
