LITTLE ROCK, AR (KAIT/KARK) - The man accused of killing a 3-year-old boy in what police call a road rage incident is in custody.

According to KARK, U.S. Marshals worked with Gary Holmes' parents to get him to surrender.

The Pulaski Sheriff's Office states Holmes was booked shortly before 11 p.m.

He's there facing a capital murder charge and 2 terroristic threatening charges.
