LOUISVILLE, Miss (WTVA) -- The man wanted for the murder of a teenager in Louisville is now in custody.

Louisville Police Chief L.M. Claiborne tells WTVA that 20-year old Isaiah Riggins turned himself into authorities Friday night in Georgia.

Chief Claiborne says Riggins turned himself into the Douglas County Sheriff's Office around 7 p.m. Central Time. 

Riggins will go before a judge in Georgia on Monday.

He faces charges of murder after the shooting death of 17-year old Tylan Glenn in Louisville last Sunday.

Another man, 19-year old Jordan Miller surrendered himself to Louisville police Monday. Miller was wanted for accessory-after-the-fact to murder

We're told Riggins intends to waive his extradition.
