A Lexington man who was reported missing has been located and charged with murder in the fatal shooting of his girlfriend.

Initial story on shooting

Vincent Thomas Shivers, 50, was apprehended in Canada Thursday evening by members of the Toronto Police Fugitive Squad as he boarded a plane bound for London at the Toronto Pearson International Airport.

“Investigators determined Shivers was not missing Thursday and that he had fled the country into Canada Tuesday near Niagara Falls,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “U.S. Marshals, the Toronto Police Fugitive Squad and the Canada Border Services Agency collaborated to take Shivers into custody shortly before his flight was due to take off. These federal and international partners provided us with invaluable assistance on this case.”

Shivers is being held by authorities in Canada pending legal proceedings.
