WESTPORT - The man who police say shot and killed a jewelry store owner in Westport is now in custody after authorities tracked him down in Spain.

Yekutiel Zeevi, 65, was gunned down at YZ Jewelers in December.

Authorities say Andrew Robert Levene was arrested in Spain on Monday.

Police say Levene flew to the U.S. from Spain on Dec. 5, shot Zeevi three days later, and then fled the country on the 11th with about $300,000 in stolen diamonds.

Zeevi's widow, Nava, say she wants justice for her husband.
