Airman Arrested in Dallas Nightclub Death

An airman stationed at Kirtland Air Force Base in Albuquerque has been arrested in connection with the death of a man who was run over outside a Dallas nightclub.

Frank Farias, 23, is awaiting extradition to Dallas after he was arrested Friday by Albuquerque police on a warrant that accuses him of first-degree murder in the Jan. 25 death of Marlon Alfaro, 23, of Irving, Texas.

Police say Alfaro was arguing with a group of men at the club that night. The fight continued in the parking lot and the assailants got into a car, ran over Alfaro and drove off. He died later at Baylor Hospital in Dallas.

Base officials say Farias has been a member of the 377th Medical Support Squadron since August 2006.
