Dowsey was arraigned on criminal homicide charges later Thursday before Judge Joel Toluba. He was denied bail and placed in the York County Prison to await court proceedings. 

York City Police obtained an arrest warrant for Dowsey on April 28 following an investigation into Brabham’s death and have been looking for him ever since.
