Two Clinton men sought on murder warrants in connection with the alleged murder-for-hire killing of a Fairfax County gas station owner Jan. 31 have been arrested, one in Florida and the other in California, the FBI said.
Charles Daniel Stewart was arrested in Miami Thursday and James Thomas Clark Jr. was detained in Los Angeles Friday, the FBI said. Both were wanted on federal charges of unlawful flight to avoid prosecution for murder in Fairfax County, according to the FBI.
Murder warrants were issued in Fairfax for the men in the death of George H. Scarborough, 45, owner of Scarborough's Texaco on Backlick Road in Springfield. He was shot several times with a small caliber pistol as he entered his home at 6545 Yadkin Ct., Franconia, police said.
Jamie A. Scarborough, 44, the victim's estranged wife, and Betty M. Holler, 37, of Alexandria were arrested May 30 and charged with murder in the death.
Robert F. Horan, the county prosecutor, said Scarborough is accused of hiring the two Maryland men to kill her husband through a contact made by Holler.
Horan said Scarborough had been separated from her husband for nearly three years and had "frequent disputes with him.
Clark escaped last July from the Maryland House of Correction where he was serving a three-year sentence for petit larceny and conspiracy to sell drugs, a prison spokesman said.
Police have alleged that the two men, both 21, secreted themselves in Scarborough's home and shot him as he entered.
In addition to murder, both are charged on warrants with use of a firearm in commission of a felony.
