SUFFOLK, Va. (AP) -- U.S. marshals say they've arrested a suspect in a Virginia slaying on a Nashville street.

Deputy U.S. Marshal Timothy Alley says 22-year-old Jeffrey O'Neil Jennings Jr. was arrested Wednesday on charges related to the June 2013 shooting death in Suffolk. Police say Jennings and 26-year-old Lloyd Green were involved in an argument before Jennings shot him in the back of the head, then stood over his body and fired more shots.

Jennings is charged with first-degree murder.

Jennings is being held in Tennessee awaiting extradition to Virginia.
