A Mexican national wanted on a murder charge in the District was arrested yesterday by U.S. Border Patrol agents in Douglas, Ariz., after he attempted to enter the country illegally.

Agents nabbed Jorge Luis Naverette-Camacho, 24, along the U.S.-Mexico border and turned him over to the U.S. Marshal's Service, where he awaits extradition proceedings for his return to the District.

Border Patrol spokesman Mario Villarreal said Mr. Naverette-Camacho gave agents a fraudulent name and date of birth but a check through the agency's identification system revealed his true identity and the fact he was wanted in a 1998 homicide in the District.

Mr. Naverette-Camacho, also known as David Camacho, was being sought by Metropolitan Police on a warrant charging him with murder while armed in the death of Warren Helm, 28, of Arlington.

Metropolitan Police spokesman Quintin Peterson said Mr. Helm was stabbed to death in the 1800 block of 14th Street NW on the morning of March 15, 1998, when he and some associates tried to intervene when they saw a group of men beating another man.

Mr. Peterson said two men were arrested at the scene of the crime and charged with murder while armed. He said two others were arrested early in the investigation and also charged with murder while armed.
