JACKSON, Miss.–Accused killer Isaac Tiharihondi was captured at a Jackson motel early Wednesday, just days after police in Memorial City, Texas say he killed his mother and father and his five-year-old brother.
Tiharihondi had been staying at the Diamond motel for several days when he was caught about 2:30 Wednesday morning.
KPRC Channel 2 in Houston reported that Tiharihondi will remain in Mississippi until extradition procedures are complete. Then he’ll be returned to Texas to face charges that he beat his father, a local pastor in Houston, and his mother to death with a bat, then stabbed his brother.
Family firends told police and Channel 2 that he did not appear to be homicidal after the killing,
