TAMPA, Fla. (AP) --

U.S. Marshals arrested a man and a woman featured on America's Most Wanted after a nearly two-year-long manhunt.

Officials say Emma Hope Grant and Derrick Paul Holmes of Georgia
were arrested Monday at a motel in Tampa. According to police, the
27-year-old Grant and the 29-year-old Holmes were wanted in Georgia in connection with a prostitute's death in 2008.

A U.S. Marshals press release says Holmes was a pimp to several
girls throughout the southeast. They say he killed Nakisha Rawls in
Georgia because she decided to stop being a prostitute.

Grant allegedly drove Holmes to and from the homicide. Charges
were filed in Georgia but authorities say the pair fled.

The two are being held in a Tampa jail pending an extradition to
Georgia.
