WATERBURY, Conn. Waterbury police say a man they were seeking in connection with a murder was arrested at an airport in Florida, where he planned to get on a plane bound for his native Guyana.

Authorities from several law enforcement agencies arrested 26-year-old Parasurama Rabindranauth on Wednesday at Miami-Dade International Airport. They say he had booked a 10:40 a.m. flight to Guyana in South America.

Police had been looking for Rabindranauth since last Saturday, when 38-year-old Michael Sembhudyal was shot to death in his Waterbury home.

Police say Rabindranauth dated Sembhudyal's cousin for six years before splitting up, which led to an ongoing dispute and the shooting.

Rabindranauth faces a murder charge. He could return to Connecticut as soon as Friday if he waives extradition.
