STRATFORD -

U.S. marshals say they have captured a murder suspect hiding out at a motel in Stratford.

Investigators say they tracked Andrew Evins, from South Carolina, to the Stratford shoreline.

Evins is accused of killing a 23-year-old man.

He was arrested at Marnick's Rodeway Inn earlier this week.

Authorities say Evins has family in the state, which is why he came to Connecticut to hide out.

He is expected to be sent back to South Carolina to face criminal charges there.
