The D.A.'s office said the investigation led Brockton and state police to obtain an arrest warrant for 33-year-old Brendan Fernandes of Brockton and 25-year-old Destiny Fontes Silie of Warwick, Rhode Island.

The couple was last seen driving away from the scene of the shooting in a blue sedan, according to the office.

At around noon Wednesday, Virginia state police stopped a blue sedan in Chesterfield, VA, finding and arresting Fernandes and Silie.

Fernandes is charged with murder, and Silie with accessory after the fact of murder.

The D.A.'s office said the pair will face a rendition process in Virginia before returning to Brockton for arraignment.
