      A man arrested during a domestic dispute in Bald Knob, Arkansas Thursday, was wanted for an unsolved murder in Horry County.

      Horry County police say Jose Tostado, 36, will face charges of Murder, Assault and Battery With Intent to Kill when he's extradited.

      Police say Tostado is one of several suspects wanted in connection with the shooting death of Alfonzo Fuentes on September 16, 2000.

      That day, police were called to Sambo's Club on Green Sea Road in Horry County. When they arrived, they found Fuentes and another man with gunshot wounds. Fuentes died, but the other man survived.

      Detectives learned the two men had been shot from a car driving past the club. Detectives say they identified the suspects and issued warrants for their arrest but learned they had left the area.

      Officers with the Bald Knob Police Department arrested Tostado on Thursday, but he was using an alias. They contacted Horry County police when they learned his true identity.
