SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - New Mexico prison officials say a murderer on the lam for nine years was arrested while walking his dog.
The Department of Corrections says Juan Martinez was arrested early Wednesday in Espanola.
Department spokeswoman Alex Tomlin says Martinez served 21 years for first-degree murder before being paroled for lifetime supervision in 2000.

He skipped out on his parole in 2004.
According to a news release from the department, security threat intelligence officers who went up to northern New Mexico with U.S. Marshals to investigate the case spotted Martinez out walking his dog and arrested him without incident.
