MEMPHIS — Tennessee authorities say a police dog helped in the arrest of a man wanted on a first-degree murder charge out of Arkansas.

The U.S. Marshals Service said in a news release that Kevin D. Curry Jr. was arrested early Saturday at a house in Memphis. Curry tried to escape the house by going out an upstairs window, but was deterred by a K-9 officer, marshals said.

The U.S. Marshals Gulf Coast Regional Task Force had been searching for Curry, who had been charged in a killing in Crittenden County.

Curry also had warrants for his arrest out of Shelby County for aggravated robbery, false imprisonment and theft. It was not immediately known if he had a lawyer to represent him.

Another man was arrested in the house on warrants for a charge of battery and a weapons violation.

The task force looks for fugitives in a handful of Southern states.
