Earlier this month, police in Jacksonville, North Carolina, requested assistance from the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force in finding and arresting Curtis, who they believed fled and was staying in Waterbury.

Police say Curtis was wanted in connection to the murder of his 9-month-old daughter back in September.

U.S. Marshals from Connecticut, along with Waterbury Police, assisted in the apprehension of Curtis. He was taken into custody without incident Friday.

He will eventually be extradited back to North Carolina to face charges.
