LEE COUNTY, Fla. — The Cape Coral Police Department made a final arrest in a murder case that happened back in June of 2022.
Officers responded to a call about gunshots around 4:30 a.m. in June of last year outside a Cape Coral home near Chiquita Boulevard and Pine Island Road.
When the officers arrived on the scene they found 41-year-old Fernando Batista Montero dead in a driveway.
Through the investigation, the CCPD identified two suspects who robbed, and killed the victim, and then fled the state of Florida.
Roughly a month after the shooting the first suspect, 21-year-old Jose Alberdi Maldonado, was located and arrested.
Maldonado is being charged with second-degree murder and robbery with a firearm.
Last week the CCPD was able to locate the second suspect Eduardo Ramon Troche-Rodriguez in Lexington, Kentucky.
Rodriguez was arrested for second-degree murder and is awaiting extradition to Lee County.
