CHARLESTON, WV (WOWK) – A man wanted for aggravated murder in Meigs County, Ohio has been arrested in Charleston, West Virginia.

The Charleston Police Department says officers and the United States Marshal Fugitive Task Force arrested Jaquan Hall, 21, of Charleston, on a Fugitive from Justice warrant at approximately 10:20 p.m. Tuesday, July 6 in the 800 block of Kanawha Boulevard East.

Hall is wanted in connection to the murder of Kane Roush on April 4, 2021. Roush was shot Easter morning and later died of his wounds. Last month, Meigs County Sheriff Keith Wood said a grand jury indicted Hall on charges of Aggravated Murder, Murder, Complicity and Conspiracy.

Meigs County Sheriff Keith O. Wood announced the indictment of Jaquan Hall on Thursday in connection with the death of Kane Roush, 25, on April 4, 2021, in Pomeroy, Ohio. Roush was a former star football player for Wahama High School in Mason, West Virginia. He also played for the Golden Eagles at the University of Charleston.

“I’m very pleased they got him picked up down there in Charleston,” Sheriff Wood said. “I appreciate the Charleston Police Department, the U.S. Marshall’s and every agency that assisted in this investigation and arrest.”

Hall has been taken to the South Central Regional Jail with no bond. Wood says the court is now working to get Hall extradited back to Meigs County.
