MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A Milwaukee murder suspect was arrested in Birmingham Alabama by a sheriff’s deputy who was on a training exercise.
Sheriff’s spokesman Randy Christian said the deputy was being trained to spot criminals who avoid being detected on public transportation.
The deputy said 22-year-old Willie Fowler of Milwaukee seemed very nervous when the officer greeted him and the other passengers. The deputy struck up a friendly conversation, and Fowler admitted that he was being sought for a home invasion that ended in a person’s death.
A Milwaukee judge issued an arrest warrant on July 30th, and Fowler was charged with felony murder. He awaits extradition to Wisconsin.
