California man wanted in Alabama arrested in Arizona

Posted: Updated:

SAN LUIS, Ariz. (AP) - Federal authorities say a California man wanted in an Alabama murder case has been arrested near the southern Arizona border.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials said Monday that 50-year-old Jose Manuel Martinez was taken into custody and turned over to San Luis police.

They say Martinez is from Delano, Calif.

CBP officers arrested Martinez on Friday after a records check showed that he was wanted on a homicide charge out of Lawrence County in Alabama.

Details of the murder case weren't immediately available Monday afternoon and authorities didn't know if Martinez has a lawyer yet.
