ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Federal authorities say two suspects wanted in a homicide case in New Mexico are in custody.

U.S. Marshals Service officials announced Thursday that 31-year-old Thomas Stevenson was arrested last Friday in Louisiana while 19-year-old O’Shay Toney was apprehended Wednesday in Texas.

Stevenson is being held by Kenner police and Toney is booked into the Lubbock County Detention Center.

Both men are awaiting extradition to New Mexico.

Federal authorities say Stevenson and Toney were wanted in connection with the fatal shooting of 42-year-old Marvin Ellis at an Albuquerque home on May 31.

According to an arrest warrant affidavit, Ellis was being flirtatious with the mother of Stevenson’s child before he was shot.

Albuquerque police believe Stevenson and Toney fled the state and arrest warrants for them were issued on June 1.
