FORT MYERS, Fla. -- U.S. Marshals have captured a man wanted for questioning in a South Florida slaying who was also one of the agency's top 15 most wanted fugitives.
    
Felipe Alex Torrealba was apprehended Thursday in Fort Myers. The 26-year-old is wanted by the Broward County Sheriff's Office for questioning in the murder of a 42-year-old man earlier this year.
    
Law enforcement agencies in Florida and Texas have warrants for Torrealba on charges that range from drug possession to aggravated battery of a law enforcement officer and aggravated assault with a firearm.
    
Torrealba has eluded capture on at least three occasions. Authorities say he has almost a dozen aliases and a wig was found in the apartment where he was hiding.
    
He's being held pending criminal charges in Florida and Texas.
