A man charged with murder in the death of a man whose body was found in the trunk of his car was arrested at a New York airport, Maryland State Police said.

Michael Stahlnecker, 51, of Crofton, was arrested about 6 a.m. Tuesday at JFK International Airport. He is charged in a warrant with first- and second-degree murder in the shooting death of 37-year-old John P. Ryan of Frederick.

Ryan's body was found in the trunk of his car on Dec. 3 in a Montgomery County parking lot.

Troopers believe Ryan was shot at a warehouse Stahlnecker owned in Laurel and his body driven in his car to where it was found.

Stahlnecker is being held in New York pending extradition proceedings.
