A US Marshals Service task force arrested a man wanted by Puerto Rico in the beating death of another man in that commonwealth in 2005. The victim was reportedly beaten to death with a 2-by-4 piece of wood.

He was apprehended in Lawrence Thursday evening and is expected to be transferred back to Puerto Rico.
