MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - A man wanted in connection with the May 9, 2009 murder of a Montgomery man has waived extradition and will be returned to Alabama from Ohio.

Courtney Givans will be back on Alabama soil before July 1st.

The U.S Marshal Fugitive Task Force took Courtney Givan into custody in Cincinnati around 9am Wednesday. He had been staying at the home of a relative and was arrested without incident.

Givan is accused of murdering 22-year-old Jervarion Wright at the Bristol Downs apartment complex in Montgomery around midnight May 9th. Witnesses told police on the scene that they saw Givan and Wright arguing and that Givan pulled a gun and shot Wright in the chest.

The U.S. Marshal Service says a check of Givan's record indicates "a lengthy criminal record that includes felony assaults and robberies."

The Southern Ohio Fugitive Apprehension Strike Team (SOFAST) assisted in the arrest.

WSFA 12 News and our sister station in Cincinnati, Ohio, WXIX-TV, will continue to follow the latest developments in this case.

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks with Russian President Vladimir Putin during a press conference after their meeting at the Presidential Palace in Helsinki, Finland, Monday, July 16, 2018.

    Standing alongside Putin, Trump steered clear of any confrontation with the Russian, going so far as to question American intelligence and last week's federal indictments that accused 12 Russians of hacking into Democratic email accounts to hurt Hillary Clinton in 2016.
