An American model who became a fugitive after killing a man while drunk behind the wheel has been captured after six years on the run in Thailand.

Kelly Lynn Miller was finally apprehended after the FBI received a tip off she was living 9,500 miles away on the remote island of Koh Lanta, off the coast of Krabi province.

During a press conference to announce the arrest the 36-year-old sat in front of the arresting officers appearing unconcerned by the proceedings.

At one point she looked bored as she propped her chin on her hands while she also retouched her lipstick before photographers took her picture.

Phuket City Tourist Police said Miller had avoided detection by island hopping for six years.

They provided details of her secret life and how during her time on the run she had recently had a baby choosing not to register the birth to avoid any unwanted attention.

She will now be deported back to the US to face justice.

In 2004, then 26 years old, she had been driving along a motorway when she hit and killed Donald Goodwin.

The 57-year-old Florida truck driver had pulled over in the emergency lane and was checking the tyres on his trailer when police said Miller careered into him while drunk.

The case was set for a jury trial but Miller pleaded guilty and was sentenced to five years in prison. She fled the state in 2007 before reporting to prison, and was officially declared a fugitive in 2010.

Last month agents in the US discovered her whereabouts and asked the Thai authorities to arrest her.

Miller, who had given birth two months ago, had thrown out her passport.

On Tuesday at around 9am Phuket time, an officer with the Tourist Policeapproached Miller in a guesthouse car park and asked her to show her passport.

When she was unable to produce the document, the officer placed her under arrest. 
Thai authorities said they believe Miller had been able to fund her lifestyle on the run after relatives in the US had helped by wiring money to her.

Police said she had met the father of her baby, an American national living in Thailand legally, but the man said she never told him that she was an outlaw.

Her two-month-old son is expected to be deported alongside her to the US in the near future.
