TAHLEQUAH, OK -- A Missouri man wanted in connection with a double homicide in Jefferson City, Missouri was arrested just outside of Tahlequah Monday morning. 

Fifty-four-year-old David Hosier was arrested seven hours after police in Missouri found the bodies of two people in an apartment near the Missouri state capitol building. 

Hosier was arrested after a short high-speed chase by Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers and Cherokee County Sheriff's deputies at about 10 a.m. Monday. 

Jefferson City Police are now in Oklahoma interviewing Hosier. 

He remains in the Cherokee County jail. 

Jefferson City Police say Hosier is a convicted felon and he lived directly behind the victims' apartment.
