Two days after being added to the FBI’s “Ten Most Wanted” list, the Milwaukee woman accused of murdering a pregnant mother at her home near 30th and Auer is in custody.

Shanika Minor, 24, was arrested by authorities in Fayetteville, North Carolina around 2:00 a.m. Friday morning following a tip received by the Cumberland County Emergency Communications Center.

According to the Cumberland County Sheriff's Office, Minor was staying in a motel room. She’s currently being held in the Cumberland County Jail without bond as she awaits extradition.

A makeshift memorial still rests outside the home where Perry and her unborn baby were killed back in March.

"I've known Tamecca for 10 years,” friend Marquita Hughes said. “We grew up on the same block."

Hughes says she has visited the memorial nearly every day, praying the woman accused of murder would be caught.

Friday morning, her prayers were answered.

“Now that she’s off the streets, justice can be served,” Hughes said.

Police say Perry was just five days away from her due date when Minor shot her during an argument over loud music with a neighbor.

“You don’t have to physically harm someone over music,” one of Perry’s neighbors said. “It don’t make no sense to me.”
