Tennessee news station WBBJ-TV reports that 46-year-old John Dalton Jr. was taken into custody on Wednesday along Interstate 40 in north Jackson. The U.S. Marshals Service says Dalton was captured without incident.

Dalton is wanted on a first-degree murder felony warrant for the shootings of his parents, 70-year-old John Dalton Sr. and 65-year-old Jean Dalton, and his 18-year-old niece, Leonna Dalton-Phillip.

Online court records indicate that John Dalton Jr. served prison time for manslaughter in the 1998 death of his wife, Shannon Dalton. He was paroled in 2010.
