BENSALEM, Pa. (AP) — Authorities have captured a man sought in the stabbing death of his ex-girlfriend who was found inside her car in suburban Philadelphia shortly after a 911 caller reported her life was in danger.

Bensalem police say 45-year-old William Table was captured Monday, shortly after he allegedly stabbed a homeless man in an encampment.

Table is charged with homicide and kidnapping in the death of 43-year-old Teresa Priestly.

Officials say a woman called 911 shortly before 7 a.m. Monday and said her boyfriend was trying to kill her. Moments later, officers responding to a reported crash found Priestley's body.

Authorities have said Priestley, a mother of two, had recently separated from Table and changed the locks to the apartment Sunday.

Court documents don't list an attorney for Table.


This story has been corrected to show officers found Priestley's body, not brother.
