A week after a warrant was issued for his arrest, OHP troopers apprehended a Tulsa man wanted in connection to a March murder.

Troopers arrested 18-year-old Lucious Adams late Sunday night following a traffic stop near East Pine Street and Highway 11 in north Tulsa.

Adams is one of five people facing a first-degree murder charge for the March beating death of 41-year-old Joe Perez.

Police say Adams, 35-year-old Ernest Edwards, 18-year-old Tonyo Hughes, 18-year-old Romelo Northington and a 17-year-old are responsible for Perez's death.
