At the time, McIlwain was already wanted in connection to a homicide in Lancaster County after law enforcement found the body of Kimberly Alger, 36, on the back deck of a vacant home in the 3800 block of Spirit Road.

Police say Alger had filed a domestic violence report against McIlwain at the beginning of June, just days before she was killed.
