“We were thankful we were able to safely apprehend the defendant who is accused of her murder,” Steele said.

“Jonathan Wesley Harris was taken into custody a short time ago in Pittsburgh. He had fled the area, He was on a bus to Pittsburgh and was safely taken into custody as he got off of that bus.”

Carlin-Kraft, 36, left her Ardmore, Pa., apartment in the early morning hours of Aug. 22, taking a Lyft to the Center City District of Philadelphia – where she met up with Harris, Steele said.

They got back to her pad at about 3 a.m., where she was killed, the prosecutor said.

“Christina was beaten, and the beating was substantial. Her nose was broken, she had black eyes, there was a lot of blood,” Steele said, according to WPVI. “Then she died of strangulation. Something was put around her neck.”It wasn’t immediately clear how Kraft knew her killer. Harris had just been spring from prison on July 15, WPVI reported.

“Whether it was a chance meeting or something else, I can’t say,” said Steele.

Investigators learned of Harris after they released surveillance video of a man spotted near the model’s building.

Steele said police received a “substantial tip” from the video release, leading to Harris’ ID.

“When we got that name, we were able to work a number of angles,” the prosecutor said.
