STANTON, Neb. (AP) — A man sought in a Kentucky slaying has been found in northeast Nebraska.

Authorities say 34-year-old Maurice Candies, of St. Louis, was taken into custody around 11:15 p.m. Wednesday on a Warren County, Kentucky, arrest warrant. He was found hiding in a cabinet at a trailer home in Stanton, Nebraska, where he’d been staying.

He’s suspected in the shooting death of a man in Bowling Green, Kentucky, earlier this month. It’s unclear whether Candies has an attorney who could comment for him.

He’s being held in Madison County Jail, awaiting extradition.
