    Last week, 36-year-old Playboy model Christina Carlin-Kraft was found strangled in the bedroom of her Philadelphia condo, with police having detained the suspect.

    Authorities have arrested Jonathan Wesley Harris, 30, in Pittsburgh, Lower Merion Township Police and the Montgomery County prosecutor stated. The man, who was recently released from jail, was reportedly charged with first, second and third-degree murder, along with robbery, theft and related offenses in the murder of Christina Carlin-Kraft earlier this month.

    According to officials, Kraft met Harris and they headed to her apartment, with a tipster allegedly pointing to the suspect after surveillance images had been released. The informant reportedly told authorities that Harris wrote in text messages that he had met a woman and was at her place on August 22.

    Kraft was later found dead in her bedroom, with the autopsy indicating that her nose was fractured, and she died of ligature strangling just four days after being robbed.
