Man arrested in connection to deadly shooting of 14-year-old Merced boy

MERCED, Calif. (KFSN) -- There are new developments in a North Valley homicide.

A man accused of shooting and killing a teenager in Merced is now in jail.

22-year old Carlos Maldonado is accused of murdering 14-year old Christian Alonso-Andrade last March.

Authorities issued a warrant for Maldonado's arrest shortly after but the suspect escaped to Mexico.
