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.

Aaron Berkley, 32, is arrested by U.S. Marshals in downtown Memphis. Berkley was wanted for a murder in Nashville in 2010.

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.
