NEW YORK (AP) — Police have arrested a homeless man in connection with the 2009 death of New York City fashion student Carmen Saldana.
Police say Jose Martinez was arrested on charges of kidnapping, murder, predatory sexual assault, criminal sex act, burglary and other crimes.
Martinez was in custody Wednesday and unavailable for comment. It wasn't clear if he had an attorney.
The 23-year-old Saldana was a student at Fashion Institute of Technology in Manhattan in July 2009 when she was found dead in her family's home in Queens.
The medical examiner ruled her death a homicide due to asphyxiation.
