A man who was on the run after allegedly killing his girlfriend in Lancaster County six months ago and stabbing his friend to death earlier this month in Ballantyne has been arrested, according to police.
Investigators said Derrick Allen McIlwain, 41, killed 45-year-old Alvin Fletcher on Nov. 1 after an altercation at a townhome along Paperback Circle, near Providence Road West and Lancaster Highway.
The two men were reportedly friends.

McIlwain was arrested Tuesday in Rock Hill. Officials said four different law enforcement agencies were involved in taking McIlwain into custody.
McIlwain was also wanted for the murder of his girlfriend, Kimberly Alger. She was found dead in May behind a vacant mobile home off Spirit Road in Lancaster County.
“She was the kind of person that saw the good in everybody,” said Kristen Deya, Alger’s sister.
