The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation says authorities have captured the husband of a woman who was murdered in 2016.

Investigators say a grand jury indicted Daniel Chandler, 29, of Grundy County, Tennessee, and charged him with murder in the death of his wife Samantha Chandler. Samantha's body was found in 2016 in Gruetli-Laager.

Walker County, Alabama deputies located Chandler and arrested him Tuesday without incident.

Tennessee agents say he remains in Alabama awaiting extradition to Tennessee.
