Murder Suspect Caught

Posted: Updated:

Authorities have arrested the man suspected of killing another man in downtown Williston over the weekend.

46-year-old Jonathan Peter Horvath fled Williston after allegedly shooting and killing 28-year-old Derrick Spiegel of Williston early Saturday morning.

Arrest warrants were issued for Horvath by the Williston Police Department.

Yellowstone County law enforcement received a tip that Horvath was in a trailer home in Billings, Montana.

After questioning the occupant, authorities determined the suspect was not in the home but believed he would return shortly.

Just before 1 p.m. today, they received a call that he had returned.

Authorities began searching the area on foot and Horvath was spotted running in a field and was arrested after a short foot pursuit at around 1:15 p.m.

Horvath recently moved to the Williston area from Sandpoint, Idaho.

The details are not yet available as to what lead up to the murder.
