CATSKILL, N.Y. (AP) - A 25-year-old Florida man wanted for murder has been arrested in upstate New York.

State police and officers from the Village of Catskill Police Department arrested Jonathan Padron of Sebring on Monday as a fugitive from justice. He was arraigned in village court and is being held at Greene County Jail awaiting extradition proceedings.

Padron is wanted in connection with the murder of Thomas Nelson, who was shot to death in a Florida parking lot in May.

State Police were contacted by Florida authorities after information was developed indicating the suspect might have fled to the Catskill area about 35 miles south of Albany.

Troopers spotted Padron walking on Monday evening, even though he had shaved his head, mustache and beard in an attempt to conceal his identity.
