WATERBURY, Conn. (WTIC Radio) - Waterbury police say a suspect in a 2017 murder in the city has been extradited from Massachusetts to face charges.

Josue Cruz, 36, faces charges including murder and evidence tampering in the June 2017 death of Lisa Chinova, 27, who was found dead in a bedroom at 17 Greenmount Terrace.

Police say new information obtained last month from a person with knowledge of the death led to the arrest.

Police traveled to Springfield, Mass. on Wednesday to bring Cruz to Waterbury.
