(Muskogee-AP) -- A Muskogee man wanted in connection with a February shooting death has been found in a Georgia jail.

Archie Morris junior is wanted in the February 1st shooting death of Joseph Gene Smith in Muskogee.

Muskogee police Sergeant Michael Mahan says Morris was being held on a misdemeanor drug charge in the DeKalb County, Georgia, jail and was using another name. Mahan says the US Marshal's Service helped find Morris.

Authorities say they'll begin extradition proceedings to bring Morris back to Oklahoma.
