    A 33-year-old man sought for more than 15 months in the killing of a fellow Delaware car wash employee has been caught in Tennessee.

    Bobby L. Taylor allegedly shot 41-year-old Aloysisus Taylor to death as he sat in his car at the American Car Wash on Pulaski Highway near Bear on Nov. 27, 2015. The victim was struck in the torso by a single bullet fired through his open window about 8:45 a.m.

    The two men were not related, said police, who would not reveal the motive for the slaying.

    Delaware authorities issued a first-degree murder warrant for the arrest of Bobby Taylor soon after the killing but their efforts were fruitless until Sunday. That’s when Chattanooga police who responded to a report of a disturbance at a home were told he had assaulted another man. Police took him into custody without incident and he is being held in a Chattanooga jail pending extradition to Delaware.
