FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - Florida police say an 18-year-old man wanted by police in a recent killing in South Florida was arrested while trying to board a flight from Fort Lauderdale to Ohio.

The U.S. Marshals South Florida Regional Task Force took Sinceer Priest, of West Palm Beach, into custody at the security checkpoint at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport on Wednesday night.

The Sun-Sentinel reports Priest is the second person arrested in the killing of 20-year-old Desean Zachary Menelas, of Boynton Beach. Officials say Menelas was negotiating with two buyers by texting on his cellphone about the location for a drug deal.

Priest was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail on first-degree murder charges and is being held without bond. Jail records don't indicate whether he has an attorney.
