One of the suspects connected to the kidnapping and murder of a 13-year-old from Lancaster is now in federal custody.

Sources tell FOX 4 that Darius Fields has been moved to the Fannin County Jail by the FBI. He is charged with drug possession and a weapons violation.

According to police records, 13-year-old Shavon Randle's kidnapping was retaliation for drugs stolen from Fields.

The teen’s body was found in an abandoned house in Dallas four days after Lancaster police issued an Amber Alert.

A man police were looking for, Michael Titus, was also found dead in the home as well.
