    Authorities say a suspect wanted in connection with a killing in Tucson has been arrested in California.

    Tucson police say 24-year-old Zane Grey Williams was taken into custody Monday by a U.S. Marshals fugitive task force in San Diego.

    They say Williams has been booked into a San Diego jail while he awaits extradition.

    Police believe Williams and 23-year-old Javier Johansen were involved in a fight at a party at a Tucson apartment on March 23.

    Authorities are withholding details on how Johansen was killed for investigative reasons.

    Johansen's body was found in the apartment four days later after police received a phone call from a person with information about the killing.

    On April 3, Tucson police obtained an arrest warrant for Williams on suspicion of first-degree murder.
