RAEFORD, N.C. (AP) - Authorities in North Carolina say they’ve arrested a man wanted in a Florida slaying after he passed counterfeit money at a Hoke County Inn.

The Fayetteville Observer reports (https://bit.ly/2pdlTRb) 28-year-old Paul Alexander Khan and 29-year-old Nyasia Ebony-Joi Nelson were arrested Wednesday on charges of obtaining property by false pretense and use of a counterfeit trademark. The newspaper says the pair is accused of using counterfeit bills to pay a bill at the Raeford Inn.

The Hoke County Sherriff Office said in a news release that Khan and Nelson were taken into custody after deputies conducted a traffic stop on Khan’s vehicle.

The release says authorities later discovered Khan was wanted in connection to a homicide in Orange County, Florida.

It’s unclear if either Khan or Nelson has an attorney.
