DeKalb County Deputies apprehended a fugitive from Marshall County in Kilpatrick Sunday, July 28, at approximately 8 p.m.

William Harry Humphries Jr., 45, of Albertville, was apprehended after a traffic stop on Highway 68 near the intersection of Highway 168. Deputies were conducting a two day saturation of the Kilpatrick area.
