A spokesperson with the U.S. Marshals Office told FCN that Wilson was charged with the murder of Stuart Carson.

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office turned over the investigation to the U.S. Marshals Wednesday and the arrest was made a short time later near a residential neighborhood in Neptune Beach.

Wilson tried to run, but he couldn't get away, Deputy U.S. Marshal Silvestre Del Rosario said.

Carson was found shot to death in his Gator City Taxi early Saturday morning in the 500 block of West 27th People said they heard what they thought were gunshots after midnight, but it was thundering and raining and no one looked outside.

Carson's sister, Lori, told FCN her brother spoke to his wife twice that night. Lori said he was reluctant to pick up that last fare, but he was doing this job to care for his family.

Stuart Carson's funeral was Monday. The family told First Coast News they had not yet been notified of the arrest.
