BLYTHEVILLE -- A man wanted in a slaying in Kentucky was arrested in Blytheville on Wednesday, police said.

Roddrick D. Moore, 20, is accused in a fatal shooting in McCracken County, Ky., about 120 miles northeast of Blytheville.

Officers with the Blytheville Police Department, as well as agents with Arkansas' 2nd Judicial District Drug Task Force, worked with the McCracken County deputies to find Moore, according to Blytheville police.

A warrant was obtained for Moore's arrest on murder and first-degree assault charges, deputies said.

Moore was found at a home on South Elm Street in Blytheville, about a mile northeast of the U.S. 61 exit off Interstate 55, and was taken into custody without incident, police said.

Moore was booked into the Mississippi County jail, where he will await extradition, the release states.
