An arrest warrant for Scott was signed by a Texas judge in January 2018 that included a charge of murder in the death of 50-year-old Tracy Lynn Reedy. Authorities have said they had lived together in Kilgore, Texas, and she was shot during an argument outside her apartment.
Authorities in Indiana had earlier been looking for Scott, since he was believed to have ties to the Gary area. Scott is jailed and likely will be extradited to Texas.MORE NEWS: Couple Frustrated When Wedding Limo Arrives An Hour Late; Limo Company Says Staffing Shortage Is Causing Problems
