IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (AP) - An Idaho man police say shot and killed his girlfriend at a New Year's Day party in southeastern Idaho has been arrested in California.

The Truckee Police Department says 26-year-old Kevin Michael McQuilliams of Pocatello was taken into custody about 6 p.m. Thursday without incident.

Police in Nevada say McQuilliams appears to have switched vehicles to avoid capture.

Authorities in Idaho Falls, Idaho, say the shooting occurred at 1:30 a.m. Thursday and that 34-year-old AnnaRae Ponce of Pocatello died at the scene.

Idaho Falls police say it doesn't appear that Ponce was the intended target.

Authorities say McQuilliams' 4-year-old son was with him when he was arrested. The child has been placed in protective custody.

Idaho Falls authorities said Friday they are working to have McQuilliams extradited back to Idaho.
