DICKSON, Tenn. -

A man wanted in connection to a deadly hotel shooting on New Year's Day is now behind bars.

Dickson police say 23-year-old Justin Treece is being questioned in the death of Matthew Draper.  Treece had been on the run since the January 1 shooting at the Holiday Inn Express off Highway 46 and Interstate 40.

Jessie Mulder, 20, Treece's girlfriend and person of interest in the case, was taken into custody Saturday.

According to Dickson police, Treece was arrested without incident just after 2 p.m. Sunday in McNairy County.  They would not elaborate on where he was found.

Investigators say Treece and Mulder traveled nearly 100 miles from McNairy County to meet Draper and his cousin, Cody Jackson, at the hotel.

Shots were fired and Draper, 29, was killed. Jackson, 23, was treated and released from a local hospital.

Investigators have not said what led to the shooting.

Treece faces charges of felony murder and attempted first degree murder.  Mulder has not been charged.
