An arrest has been made in the death of a Cleveland woman who was struck and killed by a vehicle Oct. 20.

Police say 23-year-old Rodney Shelton Fulgham of Bolivar County is being held on a felony vehicular homicide charge.

The charge is the result of an investigation by MBI, the Bolivar County Sheriff's Department and the Mississippi Highway Patrol.
