Corning, N.Y. (WHAM) - A father and daughter were arrested Wednesday in connection with an August 2017 murder in Corning.

On August 28, police said they found 46-year-old Michele Neurauter dead at her apartment on Dwight Avenue. Our ABC affiliate WENY in Elmira reports the death was made to look like a suicide by strangulation.

Investigators with the Corning and New York State Police and the FBI executed search warrants in Syracuse and North Brunswick, New Jersey on Wednesday.

As a result, officers arrested 20-year-old Karrie Neurauter and 45-year-old Lloyd Neurauter as part of the murder investigation. Michele was Karrie's mother and Lloyd's ex-wife.

Karrie was arrested at her apartment in Syracuse. Lloyd was located in Princeton, New Jersey. A communications officer checking city surveillance cameras found Lloyd’s vehicle on the roof of a parking garage.

When Lloyd was approached by police, officers said he threatened to jump off the five-story parking garage. Over the course of three hours, officers were able to talk him out of jumping and took him into custody. No one was injured during the incident.

Both Karrie and Lloyd were charged with second-degree murder. Karrie was arraigned and remanded to the Steuben County Jail. Lloyd remains in a New Jersey jail pending extradition back to New York State.

According to RIT officials, Karrie is a fourth-year computing engineering technology major.
