By news admin

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Authorities say a murder suspect from Memphis has been arrested in Chicago.

The U.S. Marshals Service says Sydney Jackson was charged in January with first-degree murder in the shooting of Corteras Wilbourn in Memphis.

Investigators say they tracked Jackson from Memphis to the Milwaukee area, and then to Chicago.

Marshals Service spokesman Seth Bruce says Jackson was arrested at a bus stop in Chicago, as he was about to leave for Nashville.

Jackson was being held Thursday at the Cook County Jail, awaiting extradition.
