Police say 56-year-old Donald Ray Anderson was arrested Thursday outside a drug store in central Fresno after the manager recognized him from police fliers.
Anderson was wanted in the death of 62-year-old Michael Weisser and the kidnapping of his wife, 61-year-old Donna Weisser. Police say Anderson met the couple through a church ministry and lived with them off and on for two years.
He is suspected of killing Michael Weisser on Monday and then kidnapping his wife at knifepoint when she came home. He allegedly forced Donna Weisser to drive to nearby Selma before letting her go.
Anderson was booked into Fresno County Jail on suspicion of murder. His bail was set at $1.1 million.
