CENTRE, Ala. (AP) — Authorities say a man suspected in a killing in Alabama was arrested on a DUI charge in Georgia.
Cherokee County Sheriff Jeff Shaver told Al.com that a man was shot to death Saturday night at a home in the Salem community in east Alabama. The victim's name was not immediately released.
Shaver said the Georgia State Patrol took 19-year-old Matthew Gonzalez into custody early Sunday. Shaver said some of his investigators interviewed Gonzalez at the Paulding County Sheriff's Office in Georgia.
Georgia troopers charged Gonzalez with DUI, a violation of the open container law, driving without a license and a taillight violation.
Shaver says Gonzalez faces a capital murder charge in Alabama and will be extradited back to Cherokee County.
It was not immediately clear whether Gonzalez has a lawyer.
