Martin Talavera Jr., 26, is one of three men that were allegedly involved in the murder of Albert Cadena who was found shot to death in an alley in far north Abilene on Memorial Day morning of 2008.
Two other men, William Gagnon and Joe Guadalupe Rangel, have already been prosecuted and sentenced to life in connection with the murder.
Talavera, who police had been searching for for several years, has been discovered in Mexico where he has been placed into custody and is awaiting extradition.
At this time, Talavera is claiming dual-citizenship, though Abilene police do not expect Talavera to be allowed release due to the pending extradition process.
Abilene PD says once the extradition is approved, they anticipate DHS coordinating the transport of Talavera back to Taylor County with the Taylor County Sheriff’s Office.
Talavera’s bond is set at $250,000.
