UKIAH, Calif. (AP) - A fugitive suspected in the killing of a marijuana grower in Mendocino County says he was tired of running and has turned himself in.

Sheriff’s Sgt. Andrew Porter says Michael Andrew Kane had been living in Mexico and surrendered to U.S. authorities at the border this week.

Kane is the fourth person arrested in connection to the death in November of 35-year-old Jeffrey Settler. Authorities are searching for three other suspects.

Officials say Settler had hired the seven to help him trim marijuana plants at his property. Detectives suspect the trimmers surprised Settler as he was asleep and robbed him of more than 100 pounds of marijuana.

The Press- Democrat newspaper reports (https://bit.ly/2iGHfDS ) the 26-year-old Kane, originally of New York, could face a murder charge. It wasn’t known Thursday if he has a lawyer.
