WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ A Texas man on the run for capital murder is now in jail in Wichita after U.S. marshals were notified he might be in the area.

The U.S. Marshals Service says Jerome Overstreet had had been wanted on a Terrant County warrant issued June 6 out of Fort Worth for the death of Vicki Overstreet.

U.S. marshal's spokesman Logan Kline says local authorities in Wichita are uncertain about the relationship between the suspect and the victim. The suspect has used many identities and authorities are trying to determine which one is his.

Jerome Overstreet had blended in with the local community and reported having a job with a local aircraft manufacturer, which Kline declined to identify.
