TEXARKANA, Ark. (AP) – A man suspected in the death of a Texarkana man has been arrested in Oklahoma.

Texarkana police say 24-year-old Miguel Angel Martinez was arrested Thursday in Tulsa. He was apprehended by the Tulsa Police Department’s fugitive task force on a warrant for first-degree murder in the death of 57-year-old Jamie "Jimmy" Barrios.

A spokeswoman for the Texarkana Police Department says Martinez will be extradited to Arkansas and that the investigation is ongoing.

Barrios was found dead in an apartment Nov. 16. The Texarkana Gazette reports that an autopsy determined that Barrios died from severe head trauma.

Martinez remains in the Tulsa County jail, and records do not list an attorney.
