Authorities say Orlando E. Tercero is a USA citizen and fellow nursing student at Binghamton University, 140 miles (225 kilometers) northwest of New York City.

Anderson, a nursing student at the State University of NY at Binghamton, was from Westbury, Long Island.

Francisco Diaz, commissioner of Nicaragua's National Police, said he was taken into custody in the Central American nation and was being handed over to judicial authorities, according to The Associated Press.

Authorities with the Binghamton Police Department had said Tercero "had fled" from the United States to Nicaragua before police found Anderson's body during a welfare check Friday.

Orlando Tercero, a 22-year-old fellow nursing student, was brought to a prison in El Chipote, around 40 miles southwest of the country's capital Managua, ABC News reported.
