A man accused of killing a Monroe County man in South Carolina has been brought back to Pennsylvania.

Rico Herbert was arraigned late Monday night for the murder of 87-year-old Joseph DeVivo of Stroud Twp.

Herbert was arrested in February after police say he was found driving DeVivo's car.


Police say Herbert led investigators to the body a few weeks later.

They say Herbert may have targeted DeVivo as a result of information that was given to him by someone else, but that person hasn't been identified yet.
