ALLENTOWN, Pa. (AP) — A man on the Massachusetts State Police “most wanted” list in connection with a 1995 murder is behind bars in Pennsylvania.

Pennsylvania State Police said Wednesday that 48-year-old Joslyn Bailey, also known as Richard Bailey, was arrested in Allentown after he was stopped for a traffic violation on Interstate 78 last weekend.

Authorities said Bailey is wanted by Boston police in the slaying of a man whose body was found on Christmas Day 1995 in Milton, Mass.

Police allege the victim was shot to death in Bailey’s former Boston home and his body was bound, wrapped and dumped in Milton.

Pennsylvania troopers said Bailey gave them a fake name and had $25,000 in the car when he was stopped.

He’s being held without bail at the Lehigh County prison.
