Some undercover police work helped Pasadena officers catch up with a man wanted in connection with a murder that happened more than 2 months ago.Jaime Sanchez Martinez was arrested this week in Knoxville, Tennessee. He was wanted for the murder of his roommate Roni Carranza, which happened back in May.

Carranza was found stabbed and strangled on the floor of his apartment.

With the help of a tip, an undercover officer got in contact with Martinez on the phone, and posed as his former employer to find out his location. He is now being held in Tennessee, and will be returned to Texas to face a murder charge.
