DAVIDSONVILLE, Md. - Police in Anne Arundel County, Md. have made an arrest in the 2013 stabbing death of a woman and her dog.

Police said Monday that evidence and witness statements link 37-year-old Terrence Robert Proctor, of Hyattsville, to the March 2013 killing of 37-year-old Nicole Burgess. Burgess was found dead in her home in Davidsonville, 30 miles south of Baltimore. Burgess' dog, a pit bull mix, also was stabbed to death.
