According to PCSO, a deputy patrolling Interstate 10 near Eloy spotted a vehicle connected to the murder of a 35-year-old man in Tulare, California on Jan. 15.
"Deputies stopped the vehicle, occupied by a sole female driver known to the homicide suspect," PCSO tweeted.
Deputies discovered suspect, identified as 30-year-old Dewon Alexander, was staying at a hotel in Casa Grande.
"After careful surveillance, PCSO Deputies were able to arrest Alexander and book him for the warrant out of CA," PCSO tweeted.
Alexander's girlfriend, 24-year-old Karolina Villarreal, was identified as the driver of Alexander's vehicle. She was arrested and is accused of accessory to murder charges.
Both Alexander and Villarreal were booked into Pinal County Jail, pending extradition to California.
