Law enforcement officials say the search for man accused of killing a deputy in Maine is over.
  
The Maine Department of Public Safety reported Saturday that 29-year-old John Williams is in custody.
  
Williams was wanted in the fatal shooting early Wednesday of Cpl. Eugene Cole in the town of Norridgewock in central Maine. Police declined to say whether he'd been apprehended, or had turned himself in.
