MILLERSVILLE, Md. (WJZ) — Anne Arundel County police have ended their search for a 21-year-old man in connection with the stabbing of his mother in Millersville. James Zito was taken into custody just after 11 a.m. Tuesday.

After receiving a call from a citizen, police found Zito near Glen Burnie Mall. He was immediately taken to an area hospital for medical treatment.
