GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) – Authorities say a man wanted for the 1977 killing of a former immigration official in Florida has been arrested in North Carolina.

The FBI in Jacksonville, Florida, said in a news release Thursday that agents had recently developed information that 67-year-old William Claybourne Taylor was living in Reidsville, North Carolina, under a false name. The release says he was taken into custody Thursday without incident and is being held in a detention center in Guilford County.

Authorities say Taylor was indicted on charges of murder and aggravated battery in the January 1977 shooting death of a former official with the Immigration and Naturalization Service and the shooting of a former mayor of Williston, Florida.
