The U.S. Marshals say an accused murderer featured on WXYZ's Detroit's Most Wanted has now been captured.

The Marshals were on the hunt for a fugitive they say killed a man in West Virginia then went to Detroit to hide.

Dejaun Jackson, 24, was wanted for probation violations in Wayne County and murder in West Virginia.

Jackson was recently arrested in Lake Charles, Louisiana. The Marshals say they were able to track him down thanks to a viewer tip.  

We're told he will be sent back to West Virginia to face homicide charges.
