CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — A pursuit through multiple counties led to the arrest of a Clarksville murder suspect who’d been on the run for six months.

Kentucky State Police said Marques "Cheez" Kelly was spotted speeding Monday night on Interstate 24 in Marshall County and refused to pull over.

Officers chased him across Marshall, Livingston and Lyon counties before he crashed and ran off.

Police caught Kelly and two other people. He was booked into the Christian County Jail.

Kelly had been wanted for the murder of Antorious Gallion back in November. Two other suspects, Cedrick Stacker and Vincent Merriweather, were already behind bars in the case.
