A Georgia homicide suspect is in an Iowa jail after the Iowa State Patrol caught up with him Thursday.

Troopers received information Thursday afternoon from a Georgia police department that a suspect wanted in a recent homicide may be crossing the Missouri/Iowa border on Interstate 29.

Troopers located the suspect’s vehicle around 5:00 p.m. heading north on I-29 in Mills County. They pulled over the vehicle and took Courtni Thomas into custody. He is wanted in the death of a 23-year-old woman in Georgia.

Thomas is being held in the Mills County Jail until his extradition back to Georgia.
