CRAB ORCHARD - Deputies in Raleigh County have nabbed the man they say is responsible for killing a man at his home Sunday morning. 

Joe Collins, 67, of Glen White, was arrested for first-degree murder. He's accused of fatally shooting Larry Totten at Totten's home, according to the Raleigh County Sheriff's Office. 

The incident happened on the 1700 block of Glenview Road in Crab Orchard. 

Deputies said the men were acquaintances, but they have not released a motive in the shooting. 

Family members at the home on Sunday said they were mourning and therefore declined to speak to reporters.
