MONTGOMERY, Ala. — An Alabama teen wanted on a murder charge has been arrested.

WSFA-TV reports that 19-year-old Anfernee Sledge was arrested Sunday and faces multiple charges, including murder, auto burglary and burglary of a residence.

Montgomery County Sheriff Derrick Cunningham says Sledge is connected to the death of a 16-year-old in a high-speed chase earlier this month, which was connected to a rash of burglaries.

It’s unclear if Sledge has a lawyer.
