HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) — Two men have been charged in the slaying of a man found dead in an Alabama motel room.

Al.com reports 23-year-old Atimothy Devonte Pullen and 27-year-old Shaquan Laray Horton are charged with murder in the shooting death of 40-year-old Ryan Baker. Baker was found dead in a Huntsville motel room in July.

Huntsville police Lt. Michael Johnson says Horton was arrested Monday during a traffic stop. Pullen is being held on unrelated charges at a jail in Lincoln County, Tennessee. He's pending extradition to Alabama.

It's unclear if either man has a lawyer to contact for comment.
