A 31-year-old felon suspected of killing a woman in North Las Vegas was in custody Wednesday evening in Los Angeles.

Stanley Dewayne Thomas is alleged to have shot and killed the woman on Oct. 16, then fled Nevada, according to the FBI’s Laura Eimiller.

A felony warrant was issued in Nevada for Thomas on Oct. 24, charging him with murder and being a felon in possession of a firearm and the FBI’s Fugitive Task Force was asked to help track him down, Eimiller said.

Thomas was arrested Monday afternoon and was being held without bail in the Los Angeles County jail while awaiting extradition to Nevada for prosecution on the murder charge, the FBI said.
