PAWTUCKET, R.I. (AP) — A man wanted in connection with a Christmas Eve killing in Rhode Island has been arrested in Maine.

Pawtucket, R.I., police say they apprehended 20-year-old Daquan Watts in Lewiston, Maine, on Wednesday and took him back to Rhode Island to face a murder charge. Federal marshals and the Rhode Island State Police helped in the investigation.

Authorities say Watts shot 21-year-old Ryan Almeida at an apartment complex in Pawtucket at about 5 a.m. last Dec. 24. Police haven't disclosed a motive.

Watts is expected to be arraigned Thursday at Providence District Court.
