DICKSON, Tenn. (WZTV) — Accused Tennessee deputy killer Steven Wiggins is in custody.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said he was captured Friday morning.

Wiggins was wanted for the first-degree murder of Dickson County Sgt. Daniel Baker, a 10-year-veteran of the DCSO, father and husband.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said Baker was killed after responding to a report of a suspicious vehicle on Wednesday morning. Baker's patrol cruiser was tracked by GPS after not being heard from for a period of time. Authorities found Baker dead in the vehicle.

A woman, Erika Castro-Miles, has also been arrested in the case and charged with first-degree murder. A police affidavit says Castro-Miles watched Wiggins shoot Baker to death, then fled before being captured by police.

The family who found Castro-Miles hiding on their property spoke out to FOX 17 News.
