NEW ORLEANS, La. -

State troopers arrested a murder suspect in New Orleans today after he allegedly escaped prison in Missouri in mid-October.

Twenty-seven-year-old William Joshua Carter, of Missouri, was the subject of a nationwide manhunt by the U.S. Marshals Service and authorities in Missouri. 

Carter escaped from the Pemiscot County Jail on October 15 along with another inmate, Joseph Latamondeer, troopers say. Carter was being held there on two counts of first-degree murder after he allegedly ran over his estranged wife and another man in Kennett, MO in June of 2016. 

At 11 a.m. today, U.S. Marshals with the Eastern District of Louisiana contacted Louisiana State Police Troop N for assistance after they suspected Carter was in a building in New Orleans.

Troopers were able to confirm the man was indeed Carter and then arrested him without incident. 

The suspect was transported to the Orleans Parish Central Lockup where he was booked as a fugitive. He is currently awaiting extradition to Pemiscot County, MO.

At this time, Latamondeer is still at large. Anyone with any information is asked to call 911 or their local law enforcement agency, or contact the U.S. Marshals Service. Contact info for the U.S. Marshals Service in Louisiana can be found here.
