Three months after a North Carolina woman was found unconscious in a bathtub and later died of injuries to the head, her boyfriend was arrested in Maine on Monday and charged with her murder. 

John Curtis 'Jay' Tolson, 28, was taken into custody in Bangor after the Dare County Grand Jury in North Carolina returned an indictment, charging him with one count of second-degree murder in the July death of 38-year-old LeeAnn Fletcher. 

Fletcher, a mother-of-two, was found unresponsive in her home in Kitty Hawk on July 22.
