MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A man who was wanted for a killing in Nashville nearly 10 years ago was arrested in downtown Memphis on Thursday.
Aaron Berkley, 32, was arrested out of a vehicle without incident by U.S. Marshals near the intersection of South Main Street and Dr. Martin Luther King Avenue.
Berkley was wanted on a first-degree murder charge for the November 2010 killing of 24-year-old Essex Issac Washington in Nashville.
Metro Nashville Police said Berkley and Washington were acquaintances, and robbery may have been the motive for the killing.
Police said Berkley has a pistol and a stack of cash with him when he was arrested in Memphis.
Berkley is currently being held at the Shelby County Detention Center.
