PORTSMOUTH -- A Portsmouth man who failed to appear in court on murder charges in July was arrested in North Carolina Friday.

The Portsmouth Police Department's Fugitive Apprehension Unit along with the U.S. Marshals' Services Fugitive Task Force arrested 25 year-old Jason Christopher McCoy in Charlotte, North Carolina at 11:30 a.m.

Police say McCoy is one of three people indicted in the 2005 shooting death of 28 year-old Terrace Wilson.

Earlier this year, the two co-defendants, Jamar Devon Riddick and Terry Termaine Bullock, were convicted of Wilson's murder.

McCoy had outstanding indictments for murder, attempted robbery, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony and wearing a mask in public.

In March 2012, McCoy was granted bond and placed on house arrest and electronic monitoring, pending his court date.

According to police, McCoy failed to appear on his last scheduled court date.

McCoy is currently in the custody of the Mecklenburg County Sheriff's Department in North Carolina pending an extradition hearing.
