Authorities have not publicly suggested a motive.

The marshals service said last week that an arrest warrant had been issued for Johnson in connection with the slaying. A $15,000 reward had been offered.

It was not immediately clear whether Johnson had an attorney.

The marshals statement Tuesday did not say where in Indiana Johnson was arrested. A news conference is scheduled for Wednesday.

Smith was arrested Dec. 9 in Southaven on an auto theft warrant related to the Mercedes used in the killing, Weirich said.

He also faces an attempted murder charge and other counts. Young Dolph’s brother, who was with him at the time of the killing, was the victim in the attempted murder, Weirich said. Police said no one else was shot.

Online court records did not appear to show an attorney for Smith on Tuesday night. He was extradited to Shelby County and was being held without bail, Weirich said.
