KNOXVILLE -- A fight at a convenience store this weekend led to the arrest of an out-of-state murder suspect featured on "America's Most Wanted," police said.


Tyshon Leteek Jones, 20, faces murder charges in a 2010 killing in Montgomery County, Md., Knoxville Police Department Capt. Gary Holliday said. The search had been featured three times on the "America's Most Wanted" television show, most recently a year ago.
