A fugitive wanted by authorities in Massachusetts has been found in Utica.

35-Year old Tarrane Tillis from Lowell, Massachusetts is awaiting extradition.

Utica Police say they were contacted over the weekend when investigators had a lead that Tillis was in a home on Roberts Street in Utica.  Shortly afterward the U.S. Marshal's New York / New Jersey Fugitive Regional Task Force took him into custody.

It is alleged that Tillis was one of five men who took part in a home invasion that resulted in the death of Christiano Diaz-Arias on December 18, 2013.

According to an article by Lisa Redmond of The Lowell-Sun the other four men are in custody as well.
