James Edwards Thomas was arrested on charges of malice murder and aggravated assault in the death of Chucky Trill, whose real name is Corey Detiege.
Thomas was taken into custody as he exited the plane.
He was booked into Gwinnett County Jail without bond.
On March 5, Gwinnett County officers responded to a shooting on the southbound Interstate 85 around 3 a.m.
Upon arrival, they found the 33-year-old rapper shot at least once inside a stopped vehicle.
He was transported to a local hospital where he died.
It’s unclear if or why Chucky was targeted.
The news of Thomas’ arrest was posted on the late rapper’s official Instagram page with the caption:
God Will Always Prevail ???????? && Even Tho This Is Only The Beginning, It’s A Step In The Right Direction. We Gone Get That Justice For You Chucky!
