Federal authorities have apprehended a 32-year-old man wanted on suspicion of killing a Minot woman whose body was found in a burning car in June.

Kamauri Kennedy, address unknown, was arrested by the U.S. Marshals Service in Detroit, Minot police said Monday, Aug. 30. He's expected to be extradited to Minot to face charges of murder and conspiracy to commit murder.

Police allege Kennedy killed Dominique Kelley, 33, whose body was found at about 1 a.m. June 3 in southeast Minot. Police did not say how Kelley died, though they listed her death as a homicide.

Kennedy had ties to Kelley, according to police. The extent of their relationship is unclear.

Shortly after Kelley’s body was discovered, a home associated with Kennedy was intentionally set ablaze, police said. Another vehicle that investigators believe Kennedy took was found burned in Minneapolis, according to police.
