SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- An Arizona man who was profiled on the show “America’s Most Wanted” was arrested Monday in Sacramento, Calif.

Zane Kiel Mason, 29, was wanted out of Mohave, Ariz. on a charge of second-degree murder.

Mason is accused of fatally stabbing a 51-year-old man during an altercation at the victim’s home.

Mason fled Arizona before he could be apprehended. Authorities, however, were able to determine that Mason had traveled to Sacramento.

On Monday, investigators began staking out a residence in Sacramento and located Mason after just a few hours.

Mason was taken into custody without incident, and transported to the Sacramento County Jail to await extradition back to Arizona.
