Huntsville murder suspect arrested in Maryland


A ongoing investigation involving the Huntsville Police Department's Major Crimes Unit and the U.S. Marshall's Fugitive Task has led to a second murder suspect being arrested in Baltimore, Maryland.

The murder took place in Huntsville last summer.

Investigators in Huntsville received an anonymous tip that Darrell Mason, age 19, was living in Maryland.

Federal authorities found Mason and held him on a fugitive from justice warrant.

Mason and Demarcus Kent, age 20, have been charged with the murder of 29-year-old William Lee McComb.

McComb's body was found in a pickup truck Saturday morning, July 14, 2007 at 104 Mason Court. He had been shot to death.

Mason will be held in a Baltimore, Maryland Jail until he is extradited to Huntsville to stand trial for murder.

Kent was released from the Madison County Metro Jail on November 7, 2007.

His bond was $5,000.
