She lived in New York City but was in Princeton, Massachusetts, visiting her family for the weekend.
A press conference by the Worcester District Attorney's Office is being held at 2 p.m. Saturday to provide updates on the case, District Attorney Joseph D. Early, Jr. tweeted.
Angel Cordero Ortiz, 31, is the name of the suspect reportedly arrested.
DNA evidence is being credited with finding the man authorities say killed a New York City woman who was out running near her mother's MA home last summer.
Early did not say at that press conference how police recovered the DNA, but said the man described is believed to have been driving a dark-colored SUV at the time of the crime.
She went for a run on the afternoon of August 7, and she was reported missing when she didn't return home as expected.

A lawyer for a man dragged off a United Express flight says he suffered a concussion and broken nose and lost two front teeth. United says it randomly selected Dao because it needed to put crew members on the sold-out flight to Louisville, Kentucky.
Angelo Colon-Ortiz was arrested in Worcester early Saturday morning after DNA from a cheek swab test that he consented to matched DNA collected from Vanessa Marcotte's hands during her autopsy.
State Police have arrested a Worcester man in the killing of Vanessa Marcotte, a jogger whose body was found last August in Princeton, according to an official with knowledge of the investigation.
Investigators found her body later that evening in a remote, wooded-area naked and partially burned.
Police released a DNA profile of her suspected killer in late February in hopes it would lead them to a person of interest.
The DA said that they have received more than 1,300 tips in the case, which has helped put together the suspect description.
