Suspect in 1995 Murder Extradited to Chatham County

A ten-year-old murder case is finally making its way through the courts. A man wanted for murder in Port Wentworth is now in the Chatham County jail. Police believe Juan Naranjo killed Jose Herbert on July 4, 1995. It happened at Layton Apartments on Crossgate Road.

Two months ago, police in Virginia Beach arrested Naranjo for drunk driving. That's when he admitted to killing a man in Georgia.

Naranjo was extradited to Chatham County late Monday night. His first court appearance for the murder charges will be next week at Port Wentworth's town hall.
