    The sister-in-law of NBA star Jalen Rose has been caught in Michigan after Texas authorities said she had been on the run from them for nearly four decades.

    U.S. Marshals arrested 58-year-old Kathlyn Regina Huff in Farmington Hills on Wednesday night.

    She was indicted by a grand jury in Bexar County, Texas, in 1977 on charges of attempted murder. U.S. Marshals Service spokesman Chris Bozeman told the San Antonio Express-News that she was suspected of shooting her common-law husband in the head.

    Authorities said Huff evaded capture by moving away from San Antonio, getting married and changing her name to Kathlyn Regenia Rose.

    The Detroit News reported that Rose is the sister-in-law of NBA star Jalen Rose, who confirmed to the newspaper that Kathlyn Regenia Rose is married to Jalen Rose's brother, Kevin. Jalen Rose told the paper he would support his sister-in-law's legal fight.

    Huff is in the Oakland County Jail and will be extradited to Texas.
