WATERBURY, Conn. (AP) _ A Puerto Rican man facing murder charges in a stabbing outside an island hotel has been arrested in Connecticut.
Waterbury police say a tip from authorities in the U.S. Caribbean territory allowed them to capture Jamie Nadal Gonzalez inside a city apartment building on Thursday night.
Nadal faces extradition to Puerto Rico, where authorities filed charges of murder and attempted murder against him in April.
He was charged in an April 12 stabbing in the parking lot of San Juan’s La Concha Resort following an altercation that authorities say involved drugs and prostitutes. One man was killed and a woman was stabbed in the stomach.
Also charged in the slaying was a tourist from New Jersey, George Tsouratakis, who is facing trial in Puerto Rico.
