Channel 9 now knows that a tip from a waitress who served the murder suspect led to his arrest by U.S. Marshalls at his home in Orlando.

Police said Macean killed 48-year-old Terry Aultman and 55-year-old Brenda Aultman while they were biking home on March 6 in Daytona Beach.

The married couple of nine years had just bought their dream home in Daytona Beach.

Police said surveillance video shows Macean following the couple as they walked their bikes back home. And moments later police said Macean appears back on video with a stain on his pants.
