The suspect in the murder of a Pitt student is in custody in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

Police in Myrtle Beach confirmed the arrest of Matthew Darby, 21, early Wednesday morning.
Darby appeared before a judge Wednesday morning at a bond hearing. Darby was not granted bond and asked for his lawyer to represent him on the extradition.
Darby was arrested when officers responded to a witness tip about a man "tampering with a window at a residence" shortly before 12:50 a.m., Capt. Joey Crosby said.
Darby was wanted for homicide in the death of his ex-girlfriend, Alina Sheykhet, 20, at her off-campus apartment on Cable Place in Oakland on Sunday morning.
