Arrest Made In JonBenet Murder

A man arrested in Thailand is being held in connection with the slaying of JonBenet Ramsey, U.S. law enforcement officials said Wednesday.

Federal officials familiar with the case, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the man was being held in Bangkok on unrelated sex charges.

Sources tell CBS News that the suspect, a 41-year-old second-grade schoolteacher, will be brought back to the United States this weekend.

The arrest, made in Bangkok, was made Wednesday morning, a U.S. law enforcement source said.
