The Raleigh Police Department has made an arrest in the murder of a North Carolina Department of Juvenile Justice official.Jurgen Dietmar Cheston, 48, was found slain inside his Raleigh home on the evening of August 21.

Cheston's co-workers became worried after he did not report to work for a week, so they called police. He was a grant writer for the department.

Police later released a surveillance tape of a man seen with Cheston shortly before he died.

Now, police have arrested Manuel Salvador Zamora Diaz, 23, and charged him with murder. Detectives say the investigation continues.
