PHOENIX (AP) - A man wanted for his alleged involvement in a 2003 killing outside a Phoenix restaurant has been arrested.

Phoenix police say 33-year-old Jacob D. Holmes has been booked into jail on suspicion of manslaughter after being arrested last week after a traffic stop.

It wasn’t immediately clear Tuesday if Holmes has a lawyer yet.

Police say Holmes was wanted in the shooting death of 26-year-old Alvaro Escalera in the parking lot of a Tex Mex restaurant on Dec. 3, 2003.

While police obtained several leads, they couldn’t identify any suspect.

In 2011, a cold case detective reviewed the case and worked with the Phoenix Police Crime Lab to ultimately identify a suspect.

Authorities say Holmes was indicted for manslaughter last July and a warrant was issued for his arrest.
