Nineteen-year-old Avery Berry of Jacksonville, who is being charged with three counts of first-degree murder, was picked up in the St. Louis area by U.S. Marshals, according to Jacksonville Police Lieutenant Rodney Cox.

Police say the Marshals, who have been assisting with the search for Berry, notified the JPD of the arrest at around 4 p.m.
