KINGMAN, Ariz. — A man wanted in connection with an April 16 homicide in northern California was arrested Monday in Lake Havasu City, Ariz.

Benjamin Jasper Carter, 33, was booked into the Mohave County jail in Kingman pending extradition, according to the U.S. Marshals Service.

Carter had been wanted in connection to the death of Zachery Jacob Chapman, 36, near the southern Humboldt County community of Garberville.
