UPDATED: Pastor Richard Shahan arrested in Nashville

Posted: Updated:

We're learning more about the New Year's Day arrest of Pastor Richard Lee Shahan in Nashville.  His wife, Karen, was found dead inside their Homewood home in July.

The affidavit in the case says Shahan is a "fugitive from justice.. wanted out of Jefferson County Alabama for Homicide."  It also states that a "Customs Lookout" was issued for the defendant "in the event he tried to leave the state or country; etc."

The affidavit notes that Shahan booked a flight from Nashville to Frankfurt Germany.  Homeland Security agents apprehended Shahan after the computer system red-flagged him.

Jefferson County has confirmed extradition of Shahan, who does have a court date coming up in Nashville on January 7, 2014.

In August, First Baptist Church in Birmingham said Shahan was on paid administrative leave.
***Update:  We have now confirmed that Shahan is no longer employed with the church. He was taken off administrative leave a few weeks ago. The church has no comment.
