NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Eric Lozano, who is 31 years old and from Lyford, was arrested Monday night in the killing of Mitchel T. Moreno in a Nashville motel room.
Moreno was 52 and was from the Denmark community in Madison County, Tenn.
Police said Lozano is a long haul truck driver.
A maintenance worker at the Cumberland Inn found Moreno dead on May 9. He died of an apparent beating.
If Lozano waives extraction, he will be returned to Nashville to face a criminal homicide charge.
