Double murder suspect Kirby Wallace was taken into custody Friday following a days-long manhunt in the Tennessee woods after being spotted hiding beside a chicken pen.
The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office confirmed the former fugitive’s capture in a tweet after announcing earlier in the morning that the search for Wallace had extended into Stewart County following a “credible sighting” there.
Wallace, 53, is accused of killing 63-year-old Brenda Smith on Sept. 23 after she and her husband left church and found him in their home. Wallace allegedly tied them up and set their house on fire, killing Smith and injuring her husband Teddy.
Kirby also allegedly shot and killed a man on Oct. 1.
