Atlanta, GA: Georgia Man Wanted in Wife's Death Arrested in Reno

ATLANTA (AP) - A northern Georgia man who was wanted in the death of his 33-year-old wife has been arrested in Reno, Nevada.

Authorities say 30-year-old Derrick Williams, of Smyrna, was arrested late Tuesday night on a bus leaving Nevada for Sacramento. He was wanted after his wife, Finesse Dawson, was found dead Dec. 5.

The Cobb County Medical Examiner performed an autopsy and determined Dawson had been strangled. Police say Williams tried concealing the evidence.

Authorities issued a warrant for Williams and learned he was traveling by bus from Chicago to Sacramento.

U.S. Marshals say Williams resisted arrest but was subdued and taken into custody. Authorities say he was carrying a handgun at the time of his arrest.

It is not known if Williams has an attorney.
