After almost two months on the loose, a 21-year-old Rockford man wanted for murder is captured only blocks from the murder scene.

Rockford police have arrested Tizio Brown. He's accused of murdering Walter Easley in early May.

Detectives say a Crimestoppers tip led police to Brown's location. The arrest happened in the 500 block of Ford Street, just down the road from the murder scene almost two months earlier.

Brown is charged with first degree murder. He's being held in the Winnebago County Jail on $1 million bond.
