Pigeon Forge (WVLT) A man wanted for a 2006 quadruple slaying in Louisiana has been caught in Pigeon Forge.

Sevier County authorities confirm that 25 year old Kelvin Kaigler was arrested Wednesday night at a hotel in Pigeon Forge.

Volunteer TV's Stephen McLamb reports that Kaigler waived extridition before a Sevier County Sessions Court Judge this morning.

He's awaiting his return to Louisiana to face charges.

The Times-Picayune in New Orleans reports that Kaigler shot four people in the head in what the local sheriff called a "gangland-style execution" inside a trailer in St. Tammany Parish in June of 2006.

Sevier County authorities say Kaigler surrendered peacefully Wednesday night.
