Convicted killer Tommy Lee Page is back behind bars facing first-degree murder charges in connection with the March 4 shooting death of Wayne Howard Moore at an Inglewood apartment complex, Metro Police said.

Page, who indicted in the incident last month, was located early Wednesday inside a home in the 1600 block of Dr. D.B. Todd Boulevard. He was taken into custody without incident, according to police.

Page, 35, is a co-defendant of Stephen Lowery, 45, who was arrested June 12 and is charged with first-degree murder for allegedly killing Moore during an argument while trying to collect a prostitution-related debt on behalf of a female.

Detectives believe Page accompanied Lowery to Moore’s apartment and was present at the time of the shooting.

Page was sentenced to 18 years in connection to the February 1995 shooting death of Randall Tidwell on South Fourth Street. He registered with the Nashville police department as an ex-convict in 2004 and was charged with violating parole in 2006.

A felony drug charge against Page from July of this year is still pending, police said. He also faces especially aggravated burglary charge from the March 4 incident.
