BILOXI, Miss. - Federal marshals have arrested a Mississippi man sought for a stabbing at the Hard Rock Casino Hotel.
  
Biloxi Police Maj. Christopher De Back said Tuesday that marshals arrested 29-year-old Hallis Wayne Russ Jr., of Vancleave, and his girlfriend, 37-year-old Brandi Delaine Ratliff, of Louisville, at the home of an acquaintance.
