BLYTHEVILLE, AR (KAIT) – The suspect in the murder of 26-year-old Charles Daniel Goodwin has been arrested in Indiana.

According to Bob Clark with the US Marshals Service, Tevarius Tevon Green was arrested near Elkhardt, Indiana, Monday. 

Blytheville police had been searching for Green since the body of Goodwin was discovered Sunday, July 7 after they were called to 524 East Cherry Street regarding a dead body at the home.

When officers arrived they tried to get someone to answer the door, but no one did. Officers then looked through a bedroom window and saw a man laying on one of the beds.

Officers then forced their way in the home and discovered the body of Goodwin who police say had injuries "consistent with a homicide."

Police received a tip that Green could be at an apartment off East Rose Street in Blytheville July 16, but after entering the apartment no one was found.

Green was found at a home in Nappennee, Indiana on Monday. U.S. Marshals found him hiding under clothes in a closet. Police said they also found six weapons including an AK-47 assault rifle.

Blytheville Police Department Detectives traveled to Indiana early Tuesday to interview Green. He will be brought back to Arkansas after an extradition hearing.
