Jacob Klein was arrested in Virginia on Friday.

Rabadi was found dead in his home in New Scotland. He was a physician assistant at St. Peter’s Hospital.

It didn’t take long for police to arrest Klein in Virginia.

Police say Klein was romantically involved with Rabadi’s wife in the past.

They say he began stalking Rabadi before mutilating and killing him in his garage last week.

He was extradited back to Albany County.

A preliminary hearing is set for Monday at 3:00 p.m.
