Marshals say suspect in Arizona death extradited from Mexico

PHOENIX — Authorities say a Phoenix murder suspect who became a fugitive earlier this year has been arrested in Mexico and returned to Arizona.

The U.S. Marshals Service says 31-year-old Carlos Armando Duran was taken into custody Wednesday night in Sinaloa and extradited on Thursday.

Duran was wanted on a warrant after failing to appear for court hearings in February on charges of first-degree murder and misconduct involving weapons.

Authorities say Duran was accused of fatally shooting a man outside a Phoenix nightclub in September 2017.

Duran was arrested in January 2018 and his family posted his $500,000 bond.

But Duran never appeared in court to face the charges in February and authorities believed he fled to Mexico.

The Marshals Service worked with Phoenix police and Mexican authorities to track down Duran.
