LOS ANGELES (AP) - Los Angeles police say a homeless man has been arrested on suspicion of killing a man at the Hollywood Hills home of former Canadian TV talk show host George Stroumboulopoulos (strom-boh-LAH’-poh-luhs).

LAPD Capt. Cory Palka tells City News Service says the suspect was taken into custody out of state on Monday. Palka says he has a criminal history and was tracked down thanks to evidence found during the investigation. He’s expected to be extradited to California.

Palka says the unnamed victim was found Sept. 23 bludgeoned to death at the home not far from the Hollywood Bowl.

Stroumboulopoulos, who has interviewed some of the biggest celebrities in the world, was not home at the time. He called the victim a dear friend.

Stroumboulopoulos had a show on Canadian broadcaster CBC from 2005 to 2014.
