Norfolk District Attorney Michael Morrissey says Cornel Bell was apprehended Wednesday at a construction site where he was working in Dania Beach, Florida, near Fort Lauderdale.
The 48-year-old Bell faces a murder charge in connection with the August 2017 death of 33-year-old Michelle Clarke. Bell was indicted in October 2017.
Investigators say Bell left Massachusetts in a stolen pickup truck, which was recovered several days later in Florida, where he has family.
Bell is in custody in Florida on a fugitive from justice charge. It's unclear when he will be returned to Massachusetts for arraignment. It could not be determined if he has an attorney.
