TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Authorities say a suspect in a killing at a Topeka hotel has been captured in Missouri.

The Topeka Capital-Journal (http://bit.ly/2ann5e8 ) reports that authorities are working on the extradition of the 26-year-old man. He was captured Wednesday in Platte County, Missouri.

Topeka police spokeswoman Amy McCarter said Thursday that the man initially was identified as a person of interest in the death of 18-year-old Sarah Crawford but is now considered a suspect. Crawford was found Saturday in a room at the Ramada West hotel. Police said they believe Crawford died after an argument and that she and the suspect are thought to have been acquaintances.
