ALBUQUERQUE, NM -- A Duluth man released from jail in New Mexico was back in police custody there on Monday.
Albuquerque police said narcotics detectives picked up 52-year-old Robert Sandman of Duluth, Ga., while executing a search warrant at a residence.
Sandman is wanted in Gwinnett County for questioning in the death of his neighbor, 57-year-old Donald Singer last March. Police said Singer's Porsche and credit cards were missing when his body was found.

Deputies later said Sandman was found in Algodones, NM, with the stolen car and credit cards in his possession. He was arrested in Sandoval Co., NM in July, but was released from jail due to a paperwork mistake.
"The criminal justice system is not perfect. I have been in the criminal justice system for more than 30 years and it is not perfect. Sometimes mistakes are made," Major Donald Woodruff of the Duluth Police Department told Albuquerque sister station KOB.
In 1992, Sandman was convicted of murdering his wife in New Mexico. The Associated Press said at the time, the body of Victoria Sandman was found floating in the Pecos River in Carlsbad, NM.
