DALLAS COUNTY, AR -- Two murder suspects are in custody following a manhunt across state lines that ended in a standoff in Arkansas this morning.

Authorities arrested 33-year-old Sammy Crabtree and 39-year-old Robert Ballance for the murder of a Missouri man Saturday evening.

Police say they expected the pair may try to run and hide in Ballance's hometown -- Dallas County, near Fordyce.

Cell phone video shows authorities -- including Game and Fish, State Police, and Department of Corrections K9 teams -- tracking both suspects to Ballance's home.

Ballance had a gun, but was conviced to give up. Both were taken into custody.
