Officers tracked down 28 year old Tony Holden. He was caught after a long foot chase.

Investigators say Spates and Holden had been romantically involved.

He is charged with attempted second degree murder and felony carnal knowledge of a juvenile. The carnal knowledge charge stems from Holden's ongoing relationship with Spates.
