The U.S. Marshal's Office says a fugitive out of Georgia accused of killing his wife was caught here in Reno.

Marshals say 30-year-old Derrick Williams was arrested Tuesday night at the Greyhound bus station.

Williams is accused of fleeing after beating and strangling his wife to death, in Smyrna, Georgia, on December 5th.  In addition to the outstanding Georgia homicide warrant, Williams is now under federal investigation for being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm. "We hope and pray this arrest provides some measure of comfort to the family and friends of the victim as they deal with their loss," stated District of Nevada U.S. Marshal Christopher Hoye. 

He's being held at the Washoe County Jail while he awaits extradition.
