ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) — Montgomery County police say a man wanted in a slaying in Wheaton is in custody in Florida after an apparent suicide attempt.

Police say Martire Puente-Fulcar jumped from the roof of a nine-story hotel in Miami and is in critical condition at a hospital.

Puente-Fulcar had been wanted in the slaying of Rocio Nikaury Morcelo on Saturday in Wheaton.

Police say they plan to extradite Puente-Fulcar after he’s released from the hospital.
