WESTMINSTER, Colo. (AP) -- A suspect has been arrested in the abduction and killing of a 10-year-old girl in suburban Denver and attempted kidnapping of a runner.

Westminster police say they made the arrest after getting a tip that led them to a home Tuesday night. They plan to announce more details at a midday Wednesday press conference.

Jessica Ridgeway disappeared Oct. 5 and her body was found five days later in a field in a park.

The break comes two days after police said Jessica's abduction was linked to the attempted abduction of a 22-year-old runner in May at another park, the Ketner Lake Open Space. Police say their tip led them to a home near that park, which is close to Jessica's school.

The suspect will be charged in both cases.
