PHOENIX (AP) - A fugitive wanted in a double killing in Ohio has been found in Arizona.

The U.S. Marshals Service says 26-year-old Charles Walker was taken into custody Friday evening in Phoenix.

Walker is accused of fatally shooting two 19-year-old men execution-style in Toledo in August 2015.

Toledo police later found the victims in a parked car.

Authorities say there was strong evidence linking Walker to the crime and he was facing two counts of homicide.

They say Walker has been on the run for several months.

Marshals developed information earlier this month that led to them to believe Walker was living in Phoenix.

After conducting surveillance, he was arrested while leaving his apartment on a bicycle.

Walker is being held in a Phoenix jail, awaiting extradition back to Ohio.
