After eluding police for more than four years, a Kentucky man accused of attempted murder was arrested Thursday morning in Newtown.
Federal and local officials arrested Denny Paul Dugger, 44, about 8:40 a.m. without incident. The warrant, for unlawful flight to avoid prosecution, was issued in eastern Kentucky.
Accused of breaking into his ex-wife's home in 1994 and shooting her boyfriend, Mr. Dugger was being held in the Hamilton County Justice Center awaiting extradition to Kentucky.
Mr. Dugger, indicted by a Knox County, Ky., grand jury in 1994, was being sought on charges of attempted murder, first-degree assault, first-degree burglary and first-degree wanton endangerment. He was arrested on Round Bottom Road. Investigators would not say what led them to the location or how long he might have been in the Cincinnati area.
His indictment in the 1994 shootings came months after his release from prison after a court overturned his conviction in the shooting of an off-duty Kentucky state trooper in 1990.
