MACON, Ga. (AP) - Macon police say they have arrested a man
wanted in the killing of his mother and stepfather in Liberty
County five years ago.
Police say an officer spotted 39-year-old James Morris Howard early Friday breaking into cars inside a rental car compound. He was arrested and charged with two counts of entering auto, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony and possession of burglary tools.
His fingerprints matched those of James Howard, who has been a
fugitive since 2004.
Mildred and Jewel Cleveland were shot and killed in Gum Branch in March 2004. Their bodies were discovered in a shallow grave on their property in June 2004.
Howard is being held at the Bibb County jail.
