U.S. Marshals arrest Yuma man wanted for murder

Posted: Updated:

YUMA, Ariz. (13 On Your Side) – A man wanted for a murder that happened more than a year ago has been arrested and is behind bars tonight.

U.S. Marshals arrested 21-year-old Michael Rose on May 10 and turned him over to the Yuma Police Department.

Rose was arrested in connection to the murder of 20-year-old Angel Montaldo.

On April 23, 2012, police responded to a report of a dead man inside of a home near Ninth Avenue and First Street in Yuma.

When police arrived they found the body of 20-year-old Angel Montaldo, from Winterhaven, California.

Police determined Montaldo was murdered and began investigating the case.

Police immediately identified 21-year-old Michael Rose as a person of interest.

They wanted to question Rose in Montaldo's murder, but instead, Rose went on the run from police.

Now, more than a year later, U.S. Marshals finally caught up with him.

Court records show Rose is being charged with two counts of first degree murder and one count of burglary.

Police tell 13 On Your Side Rose's arrest is in connection to Montaldo's murder.

A Yuma judge has set Rose's bond at $2,000,000.

Police are not releasing much information at this time.

Today, we found out Rose's attorney asked for his indictment to be sealed.

They would not say why.

But we do know, Rose is the only person who has been taken into custody for the murder of Montaldo.

We will continue to follow this story and bring you more details as they become available.
