The suspect in a deadly domestic violence incident in Middletown has been found in Georgia, police said Wednesday.

Police said 37-year-old William Bigaud was taken into custody after a traffic stop on I-85 in Georgia.

Bigaud is accused of stabbing a woman to death on Green Street on Monday. Middletown police have a warrant charging him with murder, home invasion, reckless endangerment and risk of injury to a minor.

A news release from the Troup County Sheriff's Office in Georgia says that a lieutenant ran the registration of a 2015 Toyota Camry and found it was wanted out of Connecticut, so he tried to stop the driver and Bigaud led police on a high-speed chase.

Authorities took Bigaud into custody and charged him with fleeing/attempting to elude and fugitive for justice.

The investigation is ongoing. Police are asking anyone with information to call the Middletown Police Department at 860-638-4000.

Middletown police are also investigating a deadly stabbing Sunday morning. They say the incidents are unrelated.
