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.
