FARGO -- Technology, public tips and good police work led to the arrest Saturday of an Oklahoma City man in the death of a Fargo dentist who once had a practice there, police say.


The man, 41-year-old Michael Allen Nakvinda, is in an Oklahoma City jail. He may face a number of charges in Philip Gattuso's death, Fargo police said at a Saturday night news conference.

Gattuso's brother, Roy, said the arrest "provides some sort of closure" to the family.
