Pawtucket, R.I., police say they apprehended 20-year-old Daquan Watts in Lewiston, Maine, on Wednesday and took him back to Rhode Island to face a murder charge. Federal marshals and the Rhode Island State Police helped in the investigation.

Authorities say Watts shot 21-year-old Ryan Almeida at an apartment complex in Pawtucket at about 5 a.m. last Dec. 24. Police haven’t disclosed a motive.

Watts did not enter a plea Thursday during his arraignment at Providence District Court on charges of first-degree murder and conspiracy.
