Kaleo D. Pangelinan, 17, was captured in Roseurg, Oregon, the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office announced Thursday. He is awaiting an extradition hearing to return to Georgia.
Investigators said Pangelinan is the boyfriend of 16-year-old Candace Walton, who was arrested in Kentucky two days after a fire tore through her home on Old Zebulon Road killing two people. Both are being charged with murder.

A motive behind the deadly arson has not been released.
