FBI arrest by Jeff Switzer
A 35-year-old brewery worker was arrested without incident at Redhook Ale Brewery on Apr. 9 after six years of being wanted by the New York State Police.
   Members of the Seattle Area Fugitive Apprehension Team took Jose Antonio Ventura, also known as Anibal Faria Beltran, into custody at 5 p.m. and booked him into the King County Jail.
   Ventura was indicted by a New York Grand Jury in March 1990 for the murder of his wife's ex-husband, Robert S. Keller, who was bludgeoned to death in Cicero, N.Y., in 1989. After the murder, Ventura fled to the Dominican Republic. Authorities do not know when Ventura returned to the United States, but discovered where he was Apr. 9.
   He remains in the King County Jail while authorities are arranging to extradite him to New York.
