NEW YORK - A man who police say stabbed a woman to death in a Manhattan supermarket has been arrested in Florida.

New York police say 42-year-old James Gonzalez was arrested Monday in Miami after the television show "America's Most Wanted" received a tip.

Gonzalez is accused of stabbing 24-year-old Tina Negron to death and injuring another woman in February.

Police say Gonzalez and the dead woman had worked at the Key Foods store. But they haven't offered a motive for the stabbings.

New York police are on their way to Miami to take custody of Gonzalez, who lived in the Bronx.

There's no telephone listing for Gonzalez in the Bronx. And attorney information for him isn't available.
