SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Brandon Mackey, accused of murdering 21-year-old firefighter Wesley Franklin, is on his way back to Georgia.

Mackey, 26, was arrested Friday near Fort Worth, Texas, charged with shooting Franklin to death in June in an attempted robbery at Deb's Pub and Grub.

The Chatham County Sheriff's Office uses a private prisoner transport company that picked up Mackey from the Fort Worth City Jail. That company will take prisoners from several jails for law enforcement agencies before dropping off Mackey. He's expected to arrive in Savannah by Saturday.
