A 33-year-old man sought in a double-homicide in New Jersey has been arrested in Arizona, authorities said Thursday.
Members of a U.S. Marshals Service task force arrested Gabriel B. Vilorio-Jaquez on Wednesday at a Tucson apartment complex while he was walking his dog, the Marshals Service said in a statement.
Vilorio-Jaquez was sought on a Nov. 3 arrest warrant issued in Trenton in Mercer County where Vilorio-Jazquez is accused of first-degree murder in Oct. 29 shootings of two people, the Marshals Service said.
Vilorio-Jaquez was jailed while awaiting extradition back to New Jersey, the Marshals Service said.
