The man wanted by police for allegedly choking his mother to death was arrested after a 81-mile long car chase that started in Burlington, Colo., police said.
The chase ended in Kansas, when police used spike strips to blow out the front tires of the car Jack "J.T." Clemons, 36, allegedly stole from his mother, Shirley Clemons, Burlington police chief Barry Romans said.
Lexington police told Burlington police that Clemons may be in the area, and gave a description of the vehicle, Romans said.
When an officer saw the vehicle and tried to pull it over, Clemons fled, Romans said. No one was injured in the chase, and Clemons is now in the Kit Carson County Jail in Colorado.
Never miss a local story.
Clemons can now either go through extradition hearings or agree to be extradited, said Lexington police spokeswoman Ann Welch.
The process of getting Clemons back to Kentucky could take weeks or months, she said.
Police found the body of Shirley Clemons, 64, in her home on River Park Circle. Her family called police because no one had heard from her in almost two days.
