A New York man was arrested last week in Milford for failing to register as a sex offender in New York.
Herbert Arnold, of Vestel, NY, was arrested on Friday. Police said Arnold, 72, was convicted for the rape and murder of a 16-year-old in the early 90s.
Police said they learned that Arnold was in Connecticut and staying in Milford. His vehicle was spotted by a Milford Police officer on patrol.
Arnold had an extradition hearing at Milford Superior Court on Monday. Following the hearing, police said Arnold will be brought back to New York.
