Marlowe Valentine Captured In Wisconsin

The search is over for a man charged in a Lexington murder.
Marlowe Valentine was arrested at a Kenosha, Wisconsin hotel.

Overnight, police in Wisconsin say they tracked Valentine down, when he used an ATM.

They found him staying with his fiancee, Jessica Fields, in a room at the Red Oaks Motel. Investigators noticed the couple's car, a blue Toyota Camry, outside the room.

Police tell 27 NEWSFIRST Valentine ran off into a wooded area, after noticing officers on his trail. Police caught him after a two and a half hour search.

Police also caught Fields.

Valentine did not return to the Louisville jail after a doctor's appointment Monday evening. A judge had granted Valentine a medical pass. Police say Valentine's fiance Jessica Fields picked him up at the jail to take him to the doctor but the two never returned.

The couple was seen earlier in the week at a Georgetown gas station, where police say they stole about $50 in gas.

Valentine is accused of stabbing to death, Hector Morales in 2005, in Lexington.

Valentine was moved to Louisville after he accused guards in Lexington of stealing money from him. Two guards are awaiting trial in the case.

There's no word this morning on when Valentine will return to Kentucky.
