GUTHRIE, Oklahoma -

A capital murder suspect from Texas was arrested in Guthrie after a standoff with law officers, the U.S. Marshals said on Monday.

Cody Stage was arrested Sunday after he barricaded himself in a home with a handgun.

Stage was wanted by the Wichita County Sheriff's Department for a bond revocation warrant on the original charge of capital murder in Wichita Falls.

Stage was released on bond. Investigators said Stage cut his ankle monitor and ran away to the Guthrie area with a woman.

U.S. Marshals were able to trace a vehicle to the woman. Guthrie police helped marshals locate the vehicle in the 400 block of E Harrison.

Marshals, Guthrie police and the Logan County sheriff's office attempted to arrest Stage when hid in a home.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol assisted with the standoff which was brief, marshals said.

The woman was found in the home and was arrested on complaints of possession of controlled substance and harboring a fugitive. She was not identified by the U.S. Marshals.
