AMARILLO - The lead suspect in a weekend murder near Follett is now in police custody.

Authorities say 45-year-old Antonio Perez turned himself in to police in Little Rock, Arkansas around 3:30 Friday afternoon.

Multiple law enforcement agencies have been searching for Perez since September 19, the night Perez is believed to have killed Christian Ramirez at a Braum's dairy farm near Follett. 

Police found a car linked to Perez on Tuesday in Woodward, Oklahoma -- only an hour from where the crime happened.

Texas Rangers will continue to investigate this homicide.
