Florida police have captured a New Jersey fugitive who has been on the run for almost 20 years, MyFoxNY reports.

69-year-old Robert Marone is wanted in New Jersey for parole violations stemming from a 1971 murder conviction as well as a warrant for aggravated sexual assault on a child in 1992. He was listed as one of New Jersey's 12 most wanted fugitives, and has been featured on "America's Most Wanted."

MyFoxNY reports Marone was arrested June 8 after Fort Lauderdale detectives assigned to the FBI Fugitive Task Force and the U.S. Marshals investigated on a tip from New Jersey authorities.
