Suspect in 2 Chicago slayings found near Des Moines

July 26, 2019

CLIVE, Iowa (AP) — Authorities say a man suspected in two 2007 Chicago slayings has been found near Des Moines.

The U.S. Marshals Service said in a news release Friday that members of the Southern Iowa Fugitive Task Force spotted 33-year-old Conny Miles Jr. driving Thursday afternoon near what was believed to be his residence in West Des Moines. Officers followed him to a convenience store in Clive, where he was taken into custody without incident. Chicago police had obtained an arrest warrant for him in June.

The release says Miles is being held at the Polk County Jail in Des Moines while awaiting extradition to Chicago.

It’s unclear whether he has an attorney who could comment for him.
