Little Rock Police arrested a former North Little Rock resident yesterday on a charge of capital murder that goes back to 2004.

According to police, in January 2004, Antonerio Norris killed Anthony Terry for his car and wallet in the 4000 block of Old Shackleford Road, shooting him once in the back of the head and later burning his Mercury Topaz in North Little Rock. After Norris was developed as a suspect in 2006, police say, he fled Arkansas. He was recently arrested and extradited from New York State, and is now in custody at the Pulaski County Jail.
