GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) – Authorities say a man wanted in Tennessee on a murder charge has been arrested in north Florida.

Deputy U.S. Marshal Byron Carroll tells The Gainesville Sun that Randy Harr was arrested Thursday after officers learned he was living in a tent near a lake outside Gainesville.

Carroll says Harr is wanted in Hawkins County, Tenn., on charges of murder, arson and burglary. Harr allegedly shot and killed his ex-wife's husband and set fire to his house.

Harr was arrested without incident by members of the U.S. Marshals' Florida Regional Fugitive Task Force.

Carroll said Harr had been living off the land and survived by hunting raccoons and fishing in nearby lakes.
