Kathy Whyte/WNBF News

New York State Police have arrested the driver of a Sport Utility Vehicle believed to have hit a jogger at around 6:30 a.m. July 26, killing him that then left the scene.

Officials say 41 year old Daniel Manwarring was killed as he and his wife, 43 year old Karen Manwarring, were running on West Whitcomb Hill Road in the Town of Tioga.

The vehicle was found a short distance away on Lisle Road and authorities have identified 33 year old Jason Townsend of Nichols as a person of interest. He was arrested over the weekend but authorities have yet to detail the nature of the charges against Townsend.

Karen Manwarring was taken to Wilson Hospital for treatment of what have been described as non-life threatening injuries.

Anyone with information is asked to contact State Police at (607) 347-4440.
