THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - A Florida man accused of killing his girlfriend and her uncle earlier this month was captured in Thomasville.
The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office held a news conference Monday announcing the arrest of Thomas Brown.
Lt. Steve Gallaher said Brown strangled his girlfriend with a string and then stabbed her uncle to death.
According to investigators, after the murders Brown traveled to Georgia where he was picked up by Cook County on unrelated charges and taken to a drug facility in Thomasville.
That is where the US Marshals service found Brown and arrested him on Tuesday.
Brown was returned to Jacksonville and booked into the Duval County jail on Friday.
