Georgia Police Catch Fugitive Killer

Authorities in Georgia apprehend Brian Nichols, the man police say killed a judge, a court reporter and a deputy Friday at the Fulton County Courthouse. Police have not yet linked Nichols to a fourth death. The body of a U.S. Customs agent was found Saturday. His truck was found outside the apartment in Duluth, Ga., where Nichols was arrested.
