A Louisiana fugitive wanted on a
manslaughter charge has been arrested in Mississippi.
Ronald Franklin Shearon was arrested in north Jackson on
Saturday, two days after authorities say he hit and killed a female
pedestrian in the East Baton Rouge Parish.
The 32-year-old was arrested near Tougaloo College without
incident by the U.S. Marshals fugitive task force.
Shearon allegedly ran down Carlena Watson, also 32, on Thursday,
then abandoned the truck he was driving nearby and fled.
He is being held at the Hinds County Detention Center. It's
unclear whether he has an attorney.
