Parkersburg police arrest alleged killer
(WOUB) -
A man wanted for murder in Columbus is taken into custody in Parkersburg.

The Parkersburg Police arrested 32-year old Duane Barnes early this morning during a traffic stop on Main Street.

According to a press release, Barnes gave officers a fake name and date of birth but they determined that he was the same man wanted in Columbus.

Police had been searching for Barnes in Parkersburg for several months but he had eluded capture.

Barnes is being held in the Wood County Jail awaiting a court appearance.
