BIDDEFORD, Maine (AP) — Police have arrested a man accused of running over and killing his mother in Maine before fleeing nearly a week ago.

Biddeford police Deputy Chief JoAnne Fisk says 26-year-old Shane Jones was arrested without incident Friday afternoon in nearby Sanford in connection with the death of 49-year-old Kimberly Jones.

Kimberly Jones died Sunday evening after she was struck by a vehicle. Police say her son was driving and then took off.

Shane Jones has been charged with felony counts of leaving the scene of a fatal accident and reckless conduct with a motor vehicle.

He's being transported to York County Jail and can't be reached for comment. It's unknown if he has a lawyer.
