COPPERAS COVE -

The third suspect wanted in the murder of a 71-year-old man in Arkansas was arrested in Copperas Cove Tuesday.

21-year-old Chestly Wayne Gaston was taken into custody in Copperas Cove as he surrendered himself to authorities without incident. Police do not know how he ended up in Copperas Cove.

Gaston along with two other men are accused of murdering Dan Roberson in Arkansas on July 9. The two others had already been arrested in connection to the murder.

Investigators say Roberson was forced by the three men into Roberson's truck while he was out watering flowers in his yard. The men intended to steal Roberson's truck.

Roberson's body was found four days later in a rural area. Ethan Sallee and Robert Glover Jr. were arrested July 13 in connection to the murder.

The Garland County Sheriff's Office and the Guadalupe County Sheriff's Office assisted in the arrest.
