William Claybourne Taylor had been on the run since 1977, when he was accused of fatally shooting a former immigration official in Florida.
Taylor, 67, who was on the FBI’s Most Wanted List, was arrested Thursday in Reidsville, North Carolina, the Associated Press reports.
Taylor also is accused of trying to shoot the former mayor of a small Florida town. That’s when he also fatally shot a former official with the Immigration and Nationalization Service.
In May 1980, Taylor was indicted on charges of murder and aggravated battery. He disappeared soon after.
