MILLERSVILLE, Md. (AP) — A man accused of stabbing his estranged wife to death in a New York City hair salon has been arrested in Anne Arundel County.

Police say 42-year-old Michael Kenny of Queens, N.Y., was arrested Friday night in the Millersville area after a slow-speed chase.

Anne Arundel police were contacted Friday by New York homicide detectives who reported that Kenny would be traveling to Millersville to visit relatives. Police moved Kenny’s family to the Eastern Shore and saturated the area.

He was spotted in a stolen van, and police say when officers tried to pull him over, he didn’t stop. Police used stop sticks to deflate the van’s tires, and arrested Kenny after using a shotgun that fires a beanbag to stun him.

Kenny is wanted for the slaying of Denise Kenny Thursday at a midtown Manhattan salon.
