LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Louisville Metro Police say they know who killed a man murdered around the holidays and both suspects are in custody. 

On December 29, 2012, Louisville Metro Police were called to the 2300 block of Dumesnil Street and found Jamie Young, 39, murdered in his home. 

Tips and clues lead authorities to an area outside Detroit where Marshals arrested Billy Richardson and Jerard Garrett. Police say the suspects set up Young. 

"At this point we believe it was a drug transaction possible set up for robbery as the warrant states," said Lt. Barry Wilkerson. "At this point we believe Mr. Richardson was involved and played a role getting Mr. Garrett there. We do believe Mr. Garrett according to the warrant was the shooter in this case." 

Richardson was extradited back to Louisville Tuesday and is facing a murder and robbery charge. Garrett is still in custody at the Wayne County, Michigan jail. Metro police say Garrett will eventually be extradited back to Louisville. 

Police wouldn't say why the two fled to Michigan. Both suspects do have lengthy criminal history.
