He's wanted in Kentucky but was found in North Carolina after getting involved in a car accident.
Kentucky State Police issued a warrant for Larry Allen Riddle.
He was located by park rangers in Swain County, North Carolina.
They say Riddle shot and killed 22 year old Eric Muprhy Thursday night in Irvine.
Police say a witness says Murphy went inside a home, and came out a few minutes later bleeding.
He drove Murphy to a gas station, where they called police, but Murphy died.
Riddle will remain in the Swain County jail, until he's extradited back to Kentucky.
