MANCHESTER, TN (WSMV) -

The search for a suspect in a Manchester homicide has led all the way to California.

Coffee County investigators said Troy King, 41, was arrested Monday as he left a grocery store in Imperial Beach, CA, near San Diego.

King was indicted by a grand jury last week on charges of murder and theft over $1,000 after he was accused of killing 41-year-old Thomas Colucci at his home in November 2012.

Investigators said Colucci had been shot several times and his fiancee was found beaten in the home's garage in the 7900 block of Maple Springs Road.

Police say King is also accused of stealing Colucci's vehicle and using it to flee the scene.

Officials said additional arrests are expected as the investigation continues.
