(WXYZ) — The man wanted in connection with a deadly house fire in Waterford Township was arrested in Pennsylvania.

Pennsylvania State Police arrested 35-year-old Adonis Drey Wilson on Sept. 2. Wilson was charged with several offenses, including false identification to law enforcement officer, failure to carry license, speeding and failure to use a safety belt.

Waterford Township police would not confirm their plans to bring Wilson back to Michigan.

On Aug. 27, witnesses reported seeing 35-year-old Adonis Drey Wilson at a home on North Lynn Street around 5 p.m. that evening and again around 10:30 p.m. that same night.

Police and fire crews responded to smoke coming from the house. Firefighters entered the home and put out the fire. While inside, they discovered a deceased woman in her 50's, police say.

Wilson is believed to be driving a rusty white 2007 Dodge Caravan with Michigan license plate: CCA 014, according to Waterford Township police.

Police have ruled the woman's death as a homicide. The Oakland County medical examiner is working to confirm the woman's identity.
