AUSTIN, TX -- A Central Texas man accused of killing his girlfriend and calling 911 to report the slaying has been arrested in Mississippi.

Austin police say Kevin Michael Waguespack faces extradition on a murder warrant in the death of Catherine Dyer. Waguespack was arrested Wednesday following a standoff in Adams County, Mississippi.

Austin police on Monday night received a call from a friend of the couple raising concerns about Dyer's welfare. The person reported getting a call from Waguespack indicating he did something bad and was going away.

Police discovered Dyer's body in the couple's home.

Police say a man identifying himself as Waguespack called 911 early Tuesday saying he killed Dyer. No cause of death was immediately released.

Authorities didn't immediately provide attorney information for Waguespack, whose bond was $250,000.
