At 1

2:43, he was arrested in Norridgewock, about an hour after Cole's widow invited him to surrender.

"# UPDATE #MANHUNT IS OVER," tweeted the Maine State Police Department. "Public is safe."

"I urge Mr. Williams to turn himself on or at least to reach law enforcement agencies," Coles widow said in a statement. "Mr. Williams, rest assured that you will be treated the same as Corporal Cole would have treated you if you had given him the opportunity, with dignity and respect."

"We just want you to talk to someone," she added. "Please, please talk to us."

Williams was considered armed and dangerous.
