CHESTERTOWN, Md.-- The roommate of missing Baylor basketball player Patrick Dennehy was arrested and charged with his murder, and police in Texas said they were narrowing their search for the body.

Carlton Dotson Jr. was arrested Monday based on a warrant issued by police in Waco, Texas, where both men attended Baylor, said Police Chief Walter T. Coryell.

Dotson, 21, was being held until a bail hearing scheduled for this morning. He also was likely to declare whether he would fight extradition to Texas, Coryell said.

Earlier Monday, Dotson was questioned for at least two hours by three FBI agents from the Annapolis field office, Coryell said. A Waco police detective also was present, but Coryell said he wasn't certain he was involved in the interview. Shortly after the questioning, Waco police called for Dotson's arrest.
