Police in Nashville say Texas state troopers and deputy U.S. marshals have arrested a homicide suspect in Lyford, Texas.

Eric Lozano, who is 31 years old and from Lyford, was arrested Monday night in the killing of Mitchel T. Moreno at the Cumberland Inn on West Trinity Lane in Nashville. 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 extradition, he will be returned to Nashville to face a criminal homicide charge.
