Marshals: Man charged in Puerto Rican homicide found in York City


Authorities in York City arrested a man who allegedly killed a man four years ago in Puerto Rico, according to a news release from the U.S. Marshals Service.

The marshals and local law enforcement took in custody Jonathan Rosado Rodriguez, a 25-year-old Puerto Rican man who they found in the 200 block of South Queen Street, the release stated.

Rosado Rodriguez is accused of killing Radames Moran Ramos in the Puerto Rican city of Barceloneta on July 11, 2011. He faces homicide charges, the release states.

Puerto Rican authorities obtained a warrant for his arrest on July 17 of this year; 10 days later, they passed a tip along to the local marshals' Fugitive Task Force that he could be in the area, according to the release.

The marshals, along with York City Police and the York County Sheriff's Office, found him on Monday, and caught him on South Queen Street after a brief foot chase, the release states. He has been turned over to local authorities, pending extradition to Puerto Rico, according to the release.

Puerto Rican media at the time reported that Moran Ramos' body was found early in the morning on the balocony of a business. He'd been shot several times, according to WAPA, a local TV station.
