1 in Custody Connected to Plymouth Meeting Car Killing

A driver was found dead on Ridge Pike and Lynda Drive around 5:45 p.m. Monday.

UPDATE: A husband and wife face murder charges in the death. The DA says it was all over a drug deal gone bad.

A person is in custody for questioning related to the killing of a driver Monday in Plymouth Meeting, Montgomery County.

The person is one of the two people that local police would like to talk to about the death of Chad Konata found dead inside his car.

Police said the car was running with its headlights and wipers on Monday evening near the West Ridge Center on Ridge Pike and Lynda Drive. Inside the vehicle they discovered the body of a man who was slumped over.

Sources said the victim was stabbed multiple times. His death is being investigated as a homicide. Detectives searched for evidence in the parking lot of the Outback Steakhouse across the street from the strip mall where the victim was found.

Surveillance video shows two people come from the Outback lot and appear to get in a car.

Neighbors say they've seen an increase in crime recently in an otherwise quiet neighborhood.

Correction: This story has been updated. It is not clear which of the two people of interest is in custody.
