Associated Press Release

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) -- A man sought in a Georgia killing has been apprehended in Albuquerque months after he was accidentally released from a jail in a nearby New Mexico county.

Police say narcotics detectives executing a search warrant at a home Monday found 52-year-old Robert Sandman.

Sandman was taken into custody in Algodones in April but later was released from the Sandoval County jail following miscommunication between authorities in Georgia and New Mexico.

Sandman was named on a Georgia warrant in the March killing of a neighbor, 57-year-old Donald Singer, in Duluth, Ga.

When arrested in the parking lot of a New Mexico casino in April, Sandman allegedly was in possession of Singer's 1988 Porsche.
