A suspect in the killing of a Korean man last month has been arrested on Cebu in the Philippines.

Local media reported Thursday that police arrested Jessie "Kano" Casado in the Cebu Hostel at 8 p.m. Wednesday.

Casado, 35, is suspected of shooting the Korean man, surnamed Lee, 20, to death in the second-floor hallway of a motel on Cebu on Aug. 26.

According to a report by the Sun.Star Cebu, a local paper, the motive of the alleged murder might be jealousy. Casado claimed that the Korean had an affair with his girlfriend, the paper reported.

Police said Casado is facing other criminal charges in separate cases, saying he had been one of the Consolacion Police Station's most-wanted men.
