Suspected accomplice held in Pa. drugstore slaying

CHESTER, Pa. (AP) — Police say they've arrested the suspected female accomplice of a man charged in the shooting death of a southeastern Pennsylvania drugstore manager.

KYW-TV ( ) reports the woman was arrested about 1 p.m. Sunday, though Chester police didn't immediately release her name or the charges against her.

Twenty-four-year-old David Wiggins, of Philadelphia, is already jailed on first-degree murder and other charges after his arrest Saturday at his home in Philadelphia.

Police say Wiggins' palm print was used to link the convicted felon who was out on probation to Thursday night's shooting of 40-year-old Jason Scott McClay, of Broomall.

Authorities say Wiggins and the woman walked into McClay's Rite Aid in Chester just before 10 p.m. Thursday and asked McClay, a Navy veteran, for help with a product.

Witnesses say McClay was then shot during a scuffle.
