BALD KNOB, AR (KAIT) – A man wanted for murder 12 years ago in South Carolina has been arrested in White County.

According to Bald Knob Police Chief Tim Sanford, he and Lt. Mark Clark responded to a domestic dispute in progress Thursday morning in the 800 block of Upchurch Street.  They arrested a man claiming to be Alfredo Olmos.

Chief Sanford states he received information from a confidential informant that Olmos was also Predencio Torres who was possibly wanted for murder in Horry County, South Carolina.  During the course of the investigation, officers in Bald Knob and the Horry County Sheriff's Office concluded that Torres was actually Jose T. Tostado.

Bald Knob authorities entered that name into the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) and found he was wanted for murder and assault and battery with intent to kill.

Tostado was wanted for the unsolved murder of Alfonso Fuentes on September 16, 2000.  Tostado told police his truck and .22 rifle were used in the killing. 

However, officers say Tostado told them the actual triggerman was a man named Andreas.  He stated to police that he and Andreas parted ways in Mississippi after the shooting and believes Andreas is hiding in Mexico.

Tostado was unable to give the last name of Andreas, according to police.
