LEOMINSTER, Mass. (AP) — The U.S. Marshals Service says it has captured a man in Massachusetts who is suspected in a 2014 slaying in Puerto Rico.
Marshals and state police arrested 21-year-old Ramon Torres-Vazquez at a Leominster (LEH'-min-stuhr) hotel on Thursday morning.
Authorities say he faces charges including first-degree murder in connection with a killing in Coamo, Puerto Rico, in October 2014.
Marshals say he obtained a fake Massachusetts driver's license and was living under an alias. He was tracked to the hotel after investigators in Puerto Rico forwarded a tip to the U.S. Marshals Service office in Worcester (WUS'-tur).
He will be arraigned as a fugitive from justice in Massachusetts before being returned to Puerto Rico. It was not clear if he had a lawyer.
