A fugitive from Tennessee was arrested Wednesday in Pasco County on warrants for first-degree murder and aggravated assault with a weapon.

Pasco sheriff's officials had received word that William Putnam, 25, of Roan Mountain, Tenn., was living in north Pasco. They arrested him at a Shady Hills home, said sheriff's spokesman Jon Powers.

Putnam was being held without bail at the county jail in Land O'Lakes.
