ROGERSVILLE — One of the two Hawkins County fugitives wanted in the March 20 shooting death of 36-year-old Christopher Varalli was captured Thursday afternoon by the U.S. Marshal’s Service office in Gainsville, Fla.

The Marshal’s office told the Times-News that Randy Edwin Harr, 49, previously of Kingsport, was located living in a tent in a wooded area in Gainesville around 4 p.m. Thursday.

Harr was indicted Monday by a Hawkins County grand jury on charges including first-degree murder, aggravated arson, aggravated burglary and felony murder.
