CRAWFORD COUNTY (KFSM) -- Kenneth Miesen, 42, surrendered himself to police at about 2 p.m. on Tuesday (May 23), Sheriff Ron Brown said.

Crawford County deputies were searching for Mieson after a Chester man was shot in the head with an arrow overnight on Sunday (May 21).

Deputies said around midnight on Monday (May 22) they found a 41-year-old Raymond Holson in his home on Front Street in Chester. Brown said Holson had been shot in the head with an arrow from a bow or crossbow in front of a home on McCaslin Branch Road, and then he drove himself home.

Holson was flown to Washington Regional Medical Center in Fayetteville, where he was listed in good condition. He is now home from the hospital, according to his friend Tawana Mitchell.

Deputies named Miesen as a suspect in the investigation.

He was booked on suspicion of first-degree battery and is being held without bond in the Crawford County Detention Center. He is set to appear in court Wednesday (May 24).
