Federal marshals apprehended Cleveland Martin, 19, at a Pughsville residence, said Lt. Debbie George, spokeswoman for the Suffolk Police Department. He is one of two men wanted for the Aug. 25 slaying of a Boston cab driver.

Martin is being held in Western Tidewater Regional Jail until his extradition back to Boston, she said.
