YAZOO CITY, MS (WLBT) -

A third suspected in the Yazoo City murder of Anthony Tyler has been arrested.

Tyler was found dead in his home on West 11th Street on May 3. 21-year-old Anfernee Rashaun Brent, who lives in Yazoo City, was arrested Thursday in Fort Wayne, Indiana, at a relative's home.

Brent is awaiting extradition proceedings and will be transported back to Yazoo City where he will go before a judge for initial appearance. The arrest came after Brent was listed as wanted on the National Criminal Information Center's database and the US Marshall's Office was contacted.

Kordarius Williams and Rodrick Williams are already facing 1st degree murder charges in Tyler's death.

"We will go to every extent to see justice done in this case," said Yazoo City Police Chief Jeff Curtis. "No matter how far we must go or how long it will take us, we will bring those responsible to justice."
