Wiggins, a felon with a violent criminal history spanning back more than a decade, was wanted on multiple warrants at the time of the shooting.
Authorities haven’t announced a possible motive in the killing, but said Wiggins was quickly identified using surveillance footage.
The day before, on Tuesday, Kingston Springs Police Department officers charged him with aggravated assault and theft stemming from a domestic incident involving Castro-Miles that took place at a motel in the 100 block of Luyben Hills Road.
