Billy Varner, wanted for questioning in the deaths of his wife and mother, is now in custody after a week long manhunt. Varner, 54, robbed a Catholic church and was arrested nearly 1,000 miles away from Antioch just outside of Williston, N.D. on Saturday. “He walked in with a shotgun during the mass,” said Police Chief Craig Somerville at a press conference. “The parishioners in the church chased him out and gave a good description… The suspect fled the scene and several church goers followed and it ended without incident,” he said.
