Seattle police have arrested the man suspected of killing Teresa Butz, actor Norbert Leo Butz' 39-year-old sister, according to The Seattle Times. Police apprehended the suspect, Isaiah M.K. Kalebu, on Friday evening. Earlier in July, a prosecutor's request that Kalebu be kept in custody for a separate alleged crime was denied.

The attack on Butz, which left another woman wounded, necessitated the postponement of previews of the Broadway-bound musical, Catch Me If You Can, which was to have begun previews this past week at Seattle's 5th Avenue Theatre. Previews are expected to begin this coming week.
