A man wanted in North Carolina for allegedly helping his brother commit a Sept. 30 homicide was arrested Wednesday night in Pittsburgh’s Sheraden neighborhood by Allegheny County sheriff’s deputies.

Caverce Rahmir Williams, 24, was taken into custody at about 7:30 p.m. in the 1500 block of Evanston Street, according to the sheriff’s office.

Authorities from the FBI in Pittsburgh and Charlotte, N.C., notified the sheriff’s fugitive squad that Williams may be in the area. He answered their knock on the door of the house in Sheraden, according to a news release.

A woman and 2-year-old child who were living at the house weren’t identified by name and the woman wasn’t charged, according to the release.

Williams is accused of being an accomplice in the Sept. 30 killing of Donald Watlington, 27, in Burlington, N.C.

Williams’ brother, Miktu Rogier Williams, was arrested Nov. 1 in Alexandria, Va., on murder charges.

Both Williams brothers are awaiting extradition to North Carolina. Caverce Rahmir Williams is in the Allegheny County Jail.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
