A man wanted in connection with a 1982 murder in Denver has been arrested and jailed in California.
Authorities say 60-year-old Manuel Garibay was arrested August 4th after police say he swerved across a yellow line on a road in Ontario, California.
He was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving, but a routine criminal background check turned up a 25-year-old warrant for his arrest on a murder charge.
Denver police spokesman Sonny Jackson confirmed that Garibay is wanted for the March 1982 shooting death of 26-year-old Jesus Gutierrez Sanchez.
He was shot outside a bar during an argument stemming from a traffic accident.
Garibay has denied any involvement in the killing.
He's being held in the San Bernardino County Jail pending extradition to Colorado.
