Police in Dumas have arrested a man in the slaying of a woman who was killed in front of her children.

Police say 26-year-old Marquis Poole turned himself in on Sunday.

Authorities say 26-year-old Amanda Madden was killed Friday. Investigator Chuck Blevins told Little Rock television station KTHV (http://is.gd/FaAjuB ) that a witness saw the shooting and identified the alleged shooter to police.

Blevins says more charges may be filed after investigators learn where Poole had been hiding since the shooting.

Madden leaves behind five children.

A prosecutor is to lodge formal charges against Poole.
