Man wanted in Louisiana killing arrested in Texas burglary
LAKE CHARLES, La. (AP) - Authorities say a man wanted in a Louisiana killing was arrested during a Texas burglary.
Calcasieu Parish sheriff's spokeswoman Kim Myers says detectives had tracked 57-year-old Ronald McLain from southwest Louisiana to Aransas Pass, Texas, where he was arrested Saturday after an anonymous tip. An online Aransas County inmate database indicates he's being held without bond as a fugitive and as an alleged parole violator.
He's accused in Louisiana of shooting 68-year-old John Michael Deville of Lake Charles and leaving the body by Deville's pickup truck on the shoulder of Interstate 10 near Sulphur. State police found Deville's body early Tuesday, shortly after surveillance video showed his truck leaving a casino.
Myers says McLain was on parole from a 50-year prison sentence for robbery with a deadly weapon.
