Posted: Updated:

KNOXVILLE, TN (News Sentinel) --  When Kenneth Wayne Washington on Wednesday rolled into Knoxville on a Greyhound bus, a special team of police officers armed with a murder warrant were waiting for him.

Washington, 32, was arrested about 5 p.m. at the bus station on Magnolia Avenue by members of the Knoxville Police Department's Repeat Offender Squad, according to police spokesman Darrell DeBusk. The bus was inbound from Louisiana.

DeBusk said officers interviewed Washington and then charged him with first-degree murder. His bond was set at $1 million on the murder charge and he was denied bond on an outstanding charge of failure to appear in court, records show.

Washington is charged with the Nov. 3, 2012, slaying of 37-year-old Rodney D. Miller.
