DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — A Dothan murder suspect has been captured by U.S. Marshals more than a thousand miles away in Suffolk County, New York.

Tayshawn Malik Stevenson — the man wanted for allegedly killing Akheem Benjamin Hall back in June — is now behind bars.

Stevenson has been on the run since June 9. That’s the night he allegedly gunned down Hall in the front yard of his Naomi Drive home.

Investigators believe Stevenson’s mother, 39-year-old Tiffany Robbin Rowell, is also involved in Hall’s murder. She was arrested on June 11 and charged with conspiracy to commit murder.

Rowell was allegedly involved in an altercation with Hall earlier the day of his death.

According to U.S. Marshals, Stevenson awaits extradition to Alabama to face a murder charge.

Stevenson was also arrested last October for allegedly holding his girlfriend’s face under scalding hot water at a Dothan hotel. She suffered severe burns.

Court records show that a jury trial for that case is scheduled for late September.
