POSTED: 5:15 pm MST May 31, 2011

CASA GRANDE, Ariz -- Arizona border agents have arrested in illegal immigrant who was profiled on "America's Most Wanted" in an Iowa hit-and-run that killed a man and his horse.

The Border Patrol said Tuesday that 25-year-old Feliciano Diaz of Chiapas, Mexico, was arrested in the Casa Grande area south of Phoenix on Monday for being an illegal immigrant.

As he was being processed, agents discovered an active warrant for his arrest in Des Moines on charges of vehicular homicide, unlawful flight to avoid prosecution and other related charges.

Diaz was on an August 2009 episode of "America's Most Wanted" about the Sept. 26, 2008, hit-and-run of a horseback trail guide and his mount.

Extradition arrangements are being made.

It's unclear whether Diaz yet has a lawyer.
