A man is accused of shooting and killing his daughter's fiance outside their home near Mesa.

The Maricopa County Sheriff’s office reported that on Aug. 14 they responded to a home near Main Street and Ellsworth Road and found a man deceased from the gunshot wound to the chest. 

A woman at the home reportedly told MCSO that she had been arguing with her fiancé on the front porch when a man, later identified as 52-year-old David Albert Motley, walked up and shot him. 

A neighbor who was outside working on his vehicle reportedly heard two gunshots and saw Motley walking across the street holding a handgun.

MCSO investigators say Motley is the woman's father. 

He was located and arrested by MCSO's Fugitive Apprehension Unit three days later. Motley made no statements to investigators other than requesting an attorney. 

He's being held on a $500,000 bond for second-degree murder.
