The man accused of killing a Dickson County (TN) sheriff’s deputy was captured Friday morning after a two-day manhunt. Officials have released details on the arrest.
According to authorities, a state trooper was out on patrol searching for Steven Wiggins, the man accused of killing Sgt. Daniel Baker of the Dickson County Sheriff’s Department, when he spotted a man on the wood line near the Dickson/Hickman county line.
When he approached, the trooper noted the person had various tattoos on his body and was able to confirm it was Wiggins, WREG reports. The suspect did not resist, authorities say.
Authorities have also arrested a woman in connection to the deputy’s death.
Erika Castro-Miles, described as an acquaintance of the suspect, was charged this week with one count of first-degree murder in connection with the deputy’s death, according to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.
She told investigators she was seated in the deputy’s vehicle with Wiggins and saw the suspect shoot Baker, 32, according to a criminal court affidavit.
