United States Marshals on Friday arrested a man wanted in connection with the hit-and-run death of 1993 Lawrence High graduate Spencer Schott, according to Sgt. Tom Bingham of the Jacksonville Beach Police.
Bingham said Adam Shepard, 30, was arrested by marshals in the Chicago area Friday afternoon, though Bingham wasn't able to provide other details about the capture.
Shepard is accused of running his vehicle into and killing Schott, 35, in Jacksonville Beach, Fla., on Jan. 22. Shepard had ties to Topeka, and police had located an abandoned car connected to Shepard on Jan. 29 in the Topeka area.
Bingham said Shepard will be extradited back to Florida, where he faces charges of leaving the scene of a fatality accident.
