MIDDLETOWN, Ohio — U.S. Marshals arrested a Texas man in Middletown Tuesday in connection with a man's murder near Houston.

Authorities said Juan Carlos Mendez allegedly took part in a robbery that resulted in the man’s death in Harris County, Texas.

Harris County Sheriff’s Office investigators filed an arrest warrant for Mendez, and U.S. Marshals soon located him near the 300 block of Moore Street in Middletown.

Mendez was arrested “without incident" on the outstanding murder warrant.

He is being held in the Butler County Jail awaiting extradition back to Texas.
