Newbern Police say they've made an arrest in Wednesday's fatal shooting on Patty Drive.

John Bailey, 45, was taken into custody early Friday morning, around 5, investigators said. Bailey faces a single count of first degree homicide, records showed.

Baily is accused in the shooting death of Helen Robertson, 29, of Newbern. Robertson was found shot in her living room by her mother, police said.

Details of the relationship between Baily and Robertson have not been made public. Bailey will face a judge Wednesday morning on his homicide charge.
