LOS ANGELES (AP) — Police say a fugitive wanted in a 1985 love-triangle murder in Los Angeles has been arrested after he was found living under a fake identity in Northern California.

In a release Thursday, Los Angeles police say Abel Avila was arrested Tuesday after officers found him hiding out in San Jose, Calif., living under an alias and carrying a fake driver’s license.

Avila is accused of killing his sister’s boyfriend Arnulfo Medina, who was having an affair with another married relative of Avila’s.

Police say Avila confronted Medina on the street, pulled a gun and shot him.

Avila has been booked for investigation of murder.
