Suspect Arrested in 1999 Hicksville Murder

Authorities have apprehended a 37-year-old man in Trinidad who allegedly gunned a man down at a Hicksville wedding 16 years ago, Nassau County police said.

Interpol, the international police agency, arrested Balkumar Singh five months ago on a charge of second-degree murder.

Homicide Squad detectives alleged Singh killed 19-year-old Abzal Khan following an argument with a guest at a wedding at the Masonic Temple on West Nicholai Street on June 13, 1999.

After he was extradited back to the US to face the charge, U.S. Marshals escorted him to Long Island on Friday, police said.

Singh will be arraigned Monday at Nassau County Court.
