ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A suspect wanted in the murder of an Albany man has been arrested after being on the run for months.

37-year-old Rodriguez Richardson was picked up by the Marshals in Louisiana. He is one of three men accused of running down 40-year-old Petrocelli Williams with a car during a robbery last September.

Willams' body was found in the 1700 block of Oglethorpe Blvd.

Two other suspects, Michael Stephens and William Jackson are in jail facing charges in the case.

In February, Michael Alfonzo Stephens, of Barkley Road, Albany has been arrested on warrants of Murder and Armed Robbery, in the death of Petrocelli Williams.

Petrocelli Williams body was found in the 1700 block of Oglethorpe Boulevard September 20th 2015.

Williams, 40, was hit by a vehicle, but Dougherty County Coroner Michael Fowler said they can't say for sure that's the cause of death.

In 2014, Petrocelli Williams was involved in a fiery wreck that left his brother, 36-year-old Costanza Williams, dead.
