The department says Hill fled in a red Mazda car, but Pine Bluffs Police Chief Austin Smith spotted him on Interstate 80 near Pine Bluffs shortly afterward, and he was stopped at County Road 159 and County Road 210 and taken into custody without further incident.

Hill was charged with second-degree murder the following day.

He's currently being held in the Laramie County Detention Center on a $250,000 cash bond.
