A man wanted for the murder of an Oak Hill man in 2014 has finally been captured.

According to Detective Lieutenant David Allard with the Beckley Police Department, Corte Lawson was arrested on Saturday evening after a brief standoff with police officers and members of the US Marshal Violent Fugitive Task Force.

After negotiating with the officers at the Baymont Inn on Harper Rd in Beckley, Lawson surrendered without incident.

He was wanted for the murder of Franklin Borders Jr., 41, of Beckley, on November 2, 2014.

The shooting happened on Broadway Avenue in Oak Hill and investigators say Borders was shot two times.

In January 2016, four people were charged with the murder after a witness came forward: Joseph Lawson of Beckley, Quantel Saunders of Beckley, Corte Lawson of Beckley, and Sabrina Gray of Oak Hill.

During interviews, police said Corte Lawson and Saunders confessed to a drug deal with Joseph Lawson and Sabrina Gray on the same day and at the same time Borders was shot.

Joseph Lawson is being held in Southern Regional Jail without bond.

Quantel Saunders is already incarcerated for a shootout that happened outside the Corner Store in Beckley in 2015.

Det. Lt. Allard says Sabrina Gray is still on the run.

Corte Lawson is awaiting arraignment. Police say a handgun and a small amount of marijuana were found in Lawson's hotel room.
