Police found Cramer seriously injured in an alley behind Nordegg Crescent in Red Deer.

He was rushed to hospital where he later died. A Calgary medical examiner determined he died of multiple blunt force trauma injuries.

Police issued the warrant for Talbot just before 1 p.m. Friday.

Talbot was located and arrested hours later without incident and is now in custody pending a release hearing.

RCMP have charged the second suspect they were looking for, Amanda Jo-Lynn Larsen, 27, with possession of stolen property related to the incident. She remains in custody until her scheduled court date of March 29.
