SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Police in Santa Fe say they’ve arrested a man suspected in a homicide in the city last week.

They say 27-year-old Anthony Diaz was taken into custody without incident around noon Wednesday.

Police say Diaz was wanted on a warrant for an open count of murder in the death of Santiago Quintana, who was in his 50s.

They say the killing occurred Aug. 2 near the railroad tracks on St. Michael’s Drive.

Police say people passing by the area called to report a fight in progress.

The medical examiner’s office says Quintana died from blunt force trauma.

Police say it’ll be up to the district attorney’s office to decide if Diaz will face a first-degree murder charge.
