PORTLAND, Maine — The U.S. Marshals Service says a man wanted in connection with a Florida homicide has been arrested in the central Maine town of Norridgewock.

Thirty-three-year-old Shaun Corson was wanted in connection with the June 26 killing of a Jacksonville woman. Jacksonville authorities asked for assistance from the U.S. Marshals Service in locating Corson, who is originally from Madison, Maine.

While conducting surveillance Thursday, investigators reportedly saw Corson driving away from a home in Madison, which borders Norridgewock.

Authorities stopped the vehicle and arrested Corson without incident. Corson was being held as a fugitive from justice at the Somerset County Jail in Skowhegan.
