KSP: murder suspect captured

Kentucky State Police capture a murder suspect after a more than 24 hours manhunt.

KSP say Rickie Jones was located Sunday inside a camping trailer in Rumsey, KY that was set up on private property.

KSP say Jones was detained without incident. He was arrested and charged with murder.

Troopers believe Jones is responsible for the death of Tony Faith, 37. The incident happened during the overnight hours between Friday and Saturday in the 500 block of SR 2270 E in Belton, KY.

Faith's wife told troopers that Tony and a neighbor, Jones, were having a verbal fight before she went to bed Friday night. She said when she woke up around 7 a.m. Saturday morning, she found her husband in the lawn of their home. 

Authorities have not said how Faith died.

Troopers say Jones has a history of mental illness.
