CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A man wanted for murder in Ballantyne and Lancaster was taken into custody in South Carolina on Tuesday, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police said.
Derrick McIlwain was arrested in Rock Hill, CMPD said.
"The extradition process has already been implemented, but there is no current timetable on his return to Mecklenburg County," said CMPD.
McIlwain was accused of killing a man at a home on Paperbark Circle earlier this month.
The 41-year-old was also named as a suspect in a woman's murder in Lancaster that happened back in May.
Deputies said McIlwain was wanted for an outstanding warrant for domestic violence against that woman before her death.
