The Daily Gazette of Schenectady reports that U.S. marshals arrested 23-year-old Joseph Walker of Waterbury on a murder charge during a raid on a home in Schenectady on Thursday.
Walker is accused of shooting 27-year-old David Caban in the head as they sat in a car in their hometown on May 12.
Waterbury police have said the killing was drug-related.
Police say Walker had crack cocaine when he was arrested and he’s facing a drug charge in Schenectady.
He’s being held pending extradition proceedings. Information on whether he has a lawyer wasn’t available.
A Queens man had been arrested previously on charges of hindering prosecution and tampering with evidence in the case.
