US Marshals in Delaware Arrest Man in Connection With Morgantown Malicious Wounding

Posted: Updated:

The U.S. Marshal's Service in Wilmington, Delaware, arrested a man Sunday in connection with a malicious wounding incident that happened on Sept. 12 in Morgantown, according to the Morgantown Police Department.

Khalil Taylor, 33, was arrested Sunday at a gas station west of Wilmington, Del., following a short foot pursuit by Deputy U.S. Marshals, according to a news release form Alex P. Neville, Supervisory Deputy U.S. Marshal for the northern district of West Virginia.

Taylor was wanted by U.S. Marshals for violating his federal supervised release. Taylor was placed on supervision based upon a drug conviction in 2007, according to Neville.

Neville said a petition by Taylor's probation officer that was filed in federal court alleged that Taylor violated his terms of supervision by allegedly being a participant in an assault of a 21-year-old victim in Morgantown on September 12.

Taylor was charged by Morgantown detectives with malicious wounding and conspiracy, according to the news release.

Taylor fled W.Va. shortly after the assault and was hiding out in Delaware, according to U.S. Marshals officials.

Taylor will be presented before a federal magistrate Monday in Delaware on the federal warrant, according to Neville.

Morgantown police said the juvenile was apprehended in the days following the incident and has been remanded to state custody pending hearing.
