WHEELING, IN - A triple murder suspect who was in Jonesboro last week, according to his stepmother, was arrested this afternoon by Indiana State Police at approximately 2:36 p.m. in the Wheeling, Indiana area.

According to KAIT (Raycom) sister station WFIE, Harbison is to be taken to the Pike County jail and held without bond until his initial court appearance.

His girlfriend, Misty Davis, was released to her parents.

According to state police detectives, Harbison fatally shot and stabbed three people and seriously wounded another during a July 17 attack in a cornfield in Pike County.

Harbison reportedly fled the state with his girlfriend, daughter and stepmother.  His daughter and stepmother re-surfaced in Indiana unharmed last week, and his mother told authorities the four had been in Jonesboro the previous day.  However, local authorities say they were never notified by Indiana authorities that Harbison was in the area.
