The northwestern Minnesota man wanted for the murder of his wife was arrested early Wednesday near his home. 

Eric Reinbold, 44, was arrested without incident around 12:30 a.m. "on a wooded rural property" north of Oklee, the Red Lake County Sheriff's Office announced, noting that Reinbold has been taken to the Pennington County Jail. 

Multiple agencies were involved in the arrested and more information is expected to be released later Wednesday morning. 

Reinbold is charged with second-degree intentional murder for the killing of his wife, Lissette Reinbold, on July 9. He has been on the run since then, with murder charges formally filed in Pennington County District Court July 30.

Lissette Reinbold's last known communication with anyone was a video text message sent to friends at 6:36 a.m., not long before she was killed on July 9. A medical examiner found that she suffered "multiple sharp force injuries to her neck, torso, and upper extremities," with her cause of death documented as blood loss caused by "multiple sharp force injuries."

Reinbold was only released from prison this past March, having served part of a five-year sentence for possession of pipe bombs at a hunting property, where police also found a 32-page notebook on Reinbold's desk entitled: "How one person can make a difference: Instruction booklet at the HCU (homemade commando university)."
