MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WREG) — The suspects wanted for the murder of rap star Young Dolph were captured on Tuesday, according to U.S. Marshals.

The second suspect, Cornelius Smith, 32, was indicted on several charges including first-degree murder, according to District Attorney General Amy. P Wierich. The news release also said Smith was also charged with attempted murder involving Young Dolph’s brother who was with him at the time of the shooting.
Smith was in DeSoto County Jail in Hernando, Mississippi, for a previous arrest and was later transferred to Shelby County Jail on Tuesday.

According to the news release, the white vehicle was stolen on Nov. 10 at a gas station on Kirby Road.
Smith is currently being held without bond.
