A suspect wanted in the 2004 murder of a Shreveport man is now in the custody of Caddo Parish authorities.

Jake Robinson, 60, was booked into the Caddo Correctional Center on Thursday to face charges in the death of Harold Cotton.  Robinson was indicted in May for Cotton's murder.

Robinson was located and arrested in Claremore, Oklahoma, where he had been living for several years, but he refused to willingly return to Caddo Parish.

Robinson was transported by deputies with the Caddo Sheriff's Warrants Division after the extradition process was exhausted.  He was booked into CCC for second-degree murder and his bond has been set at $500,000.

Cotton's body was found on Feb. 29, 2004, in his Olds 98 that was pulled to the shoulder of White Springs Rd. He had been missing for three days.

Caddo Sheriff's Det. Terry Richardson followed leads in the case for the past 10 years. In 2013, publicity on the 9-year anniversary of the homicide generated new witnesses and provided enough evidence to take the case before a Caddo Parish Grand Jury.
