NEW LONDON, Conn. (AP) — A man wanted in connection with a Connecticut killing has been captured in New York City.
Authorities say U.S. marshals and New York City police arrested 28-year-old Keith Delvalle in Co-Op City in the Bronx on Wednesday. Police in New London, Conn., have a warrant accusing Delvalle of murder in the fatal shooting of 29-year-old Jesus Pinero last August.
Delvalle, whose last known address is in New London, is being detained in New York City pending extradition to Connecticut. It’s not clear if he has a lawyer.
Connecticut authorities say Pinero, the father of a 4-year-old boy, died of multiple gunshot wounds after someone opened fire at him on Aug. 29 in New London.
Police haven’t released details about a motive.
