Kirby Wallace was arrested without incident by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation in Stewart County Friday morning after a week-long manhunt for his suspected killing of two people and severe injuring of a third in two separate Middle Tennessee homes, according to a report by The Tennessean.

The manhunt began after Wallace allegedly attacked a couple and set their home on fire, killing the wife and seriously injuring the husband. A day later, a man was shot to death and his truck was stolen in the search area for Wallace in Montgomery County, according to reports by The Tennessean.
