26-year-old Cornelius Antwon Benton was arrested Saturday in Okaloosa County, Fla., and charged with capital murder in the death of Chris Woods.

No details were released on how Benton was captured.

Authorities say Benton and Tawuan Justin Townes shot Woods at his Dothan home.

Townes was arrested the morning after the shooting and convicted in March 2011 of capital murder.

Authorities say Benton could be moved from Florida to Alabama as early as Monday.

It was not immediately clear whether Benton had an attorney.
