A murder suspect who's been on the run for more than a week now has been arrested in Troy.
Investigators say Stephen Lester was picked up Thursday afternoon by U.S. Marshalls.
A 40-caliber handgun believed to be the murder weapon was recovered.
A warrant had been issued in Florida charging Lester with the shooting death of 19-year-old André Leon Sawyer. Sawyer’s body was found in a ditch in Campbellton, Florida last week. He was reportedly seen with Lester the night of the murder.
Lester also faces an armed robbery charge in Ozark. He’s being held in the Houston County Jail.
