JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A man wanted in connection with a shooting death in Virginia three years ago waived his extradition from Jacksonville on Monday

Darryl Faine, 54, was arrested by U.S. marshals last week during a traffic stop on a charge of second-degree murder in the shooting death of a 26-year-old woman.

Faine had been on the run for years. Investigators say he used the alias Carl Jones while working at a furniture store in Jacksonville.

He's accused of killing Monique Landis. Faine also faces charges of reckless handling of a firearm by a felon.

U.S. marshals say he's not a typical person who gets in trouble with the law.

"He's not our typical fugitive. He's particularly not the typical homicide fugitive. One day he's wearing a suit and tie, working for furniture sales management, and the next, he's running from a murder charge."

Investigators say Faine worked under-the-table jobs while bouncing between homes in Jacksonville.

The U.S. Marshals Service traced Faine to New Jersey, Maryland, Virginia and finally to Jacksonville, where he was arrested.
