Michigan man arrested in 1991 San Bernardino County murder

A Michigan man has been extradited to San Bernardino County and booked on suspicion of murdering a Highland man in 1991, sheriff's department officials said Monday.

Alfred Woods, 49, also known as Jullian Cane, was arrested in Westland, Mich., and arrived Friday in San Bernardino, authorities said.

Woods is accused of fatally shooting Horace Terry, 52, in the Rimrock Apartment Complex in Highland, according to sheriff's officials. At the time a man named Jullian Cane was identified as a possible suspect in the killing, but he fled the state and was never interviewed and remained at large, the sheriff's department said in a statement.

In February, San Bernardino County sheriff’s detectives reviewed active fugitive files and tried to find Cane. They learned he was using the name Alfred Woods and was living in Michigan. Cold-case homicide detectives took the case and confirmed Woods and Cane were the same man.

San Bernardino County prosecutors filed charges against Woods, and U.S. Marshals arrested him earlier this month. He is being held on a no-bail warrant at the West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamonga.
