The man who led police on a high-speed chase through a Scott County cornfield is now being charged with murder.

Police arrested 39-year-old Tyrone Washington Jr. Monday afternoon after a State Trooper spotted him on I-80 driving the car of the woman he’s accused of stabbing.  She had called 911 earlier that day asking for help.  They found her with severe wounds and she later died.

Washington Jr. remains in custody in the Scott County Jail.  The victim’s name has not yet been released.
