The government of the State of Mexico says the man was arrested on suspicion of attempted robbery against Televisa executive Adolfo Lagos and attempted homicide against the victim's bodyguards.

A Wednesday statement says a second suspect is also being sought.

Lagos headed Televisa's phone and internet arm, Izzi. He was shot dead Nov. 19 while cycling on a rural highway near the pre-Columbian pyramids of Teotihuacan, northeast of Mexico City.

Authorities said at the time that robbery was believed to be the motive for the attack.
