LAS VEGAS (CBS13) — William Gardner III will face murder charges in Yolo County after his arrest in Las Vegas early Tuesday morning after calling the CBS13 newsroom.

Gardner is accused of shooting and killing his ex-girlfriend Leslie Pinkston on Nov. 18 as she sat in her car in Winters. He’s been on the run since then

He was holed up in a Las Vegas apartment as police are saying he held a man, woman and toddler hostage. Gardner called the CBS13 newsroom on Monday night, asking to talk to someone at our station.

“I regret, I regret just a lot of things, just as far as being in a lot of situations,” he said.

But that’s as close to a confession as Gardner would come, with the suspected killer speaking from the apartment surrounded by police.

“Right now there are various different police; I don’t know from how many agencies,” he said. “They are actually surrounding this area that I’m in. I can hear them through the walls actually.”

Gardner run ended on Monday at that Vegas apartment, but he wasn’t alone.
