PHOENIX (CBS5/AP) -

A man sought in the fatal strangulation and beating of his wife in Indiana was arrested at a homeless shelter in downtown Phoenix.

The U.S. Marshals Service issued an arrest warrant for 45-year-old Troy Shawn Meyers on Friday for the killing of his wife Shannon Meyers in September 2012 in Indiana.

Meyers and his wife were fighting in September of 2012 when Meyers beat and straggled his wife which lead to her death.

After the warrant was issued, U.S. Marshals received information that Meyers had been living in the Phoenix area since December 2012.

U.S. Marshals in Phoenix were able to find Meyers living in a homeless shelter Monday near 12th Avenue and Madison Street in Phoenix. He was arrested without incident.
