Daryl Smith, 30, of Trenton was arrested by the U.S. Marshals Service Thursday afternoon at the airport. He was charged with first-degree murder, second-degree possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, two counts of unlawful possession of a weapon and second-degree certain persons not to possess a firearm.

Onofri said his office has filed a motion to detain Smith pending trial.

Flippin and Smith were both arrested and charged by Jackson police in 2019 along with a third man after they were found with five bricks of heroin packaged for sale in a van at the Jackson Premium Outlets.
