VISALIA, Calif. — Authorities say a man wanted in a Central California stabbing death a decade ago has been arrested in Mexico.

Police in Visalia say Andres Espindola was taken into custody June 15 by FBI agents in Colima, Mexico.

The Fresno Bee reported Sunday (http://bit.ly/2sOiZE1 ) that the 34-year-old is suspected of killing Raymond Randle during a fight in Visalia in 2006.

The 40-year-old victim was stabbed in the leg and later died at a hospital.

Police say Espindola was identified by witnesses as the suspect, but he fled to Mexico before an arrest warrant was issued.

He was extradited to California and booked in Tulare County jail on suspicion of murder. It wasn’t immediately known if he has an attorney.
