ROOSEVELT, N.Y. (1010 WINS) -- After months on the run, the man accused of stabbing a deacon in a Roosevelt halfway house on Long Island is behind bars following a relentless search.

Andre Patton was arrested in Memphis, Tennessee. His fingerprints popped up in a database under the alias Justin Clayton. He was wanted for the stabbing death of Patrick Logsdon, last November in Anthony House -- a halfway house for men transitioning back into society after being incarcerated.

Lieutenant Fitzpatrick said Patton and Logsdon argued.

"This argument was in regards to his treatment program after his incarceration. During that physical altercation Andre Patton stabbed the deacon numerous times causing his death," he said.

Deacon Logsdon was 70, he had managed Anthony House in Roosevelt, and spent more than 30 years helping the poor.
