A couple wanted for a 1992 murder in Dodge City has been arrested in Georgia.

Roger and Kelly Jones were arrested at a Monroe County, Georgia campground last week. A tip to Kansas authorities led to the arrest. Monroe County investigators said a search of a camper discovered evidence of multiple identities used during their years as fugitives.

The Jones are wanted for the 1992 murder of Patrick Howe. Howe’s body was found in a ditch west of Dodge City. Howe worked at a Dodge City motel operated by the Jones. Investigators believed Roger Jones killed Howe after Howe told him he wanted to move to Oklahoma.
