Sheriff's officials on Tuesday had asked for the public's help in finding Navarro.

He surrendered around 10:30 a.m. today at the Martinez Detention Facility and is being held there in lieu of $2 million bail.
The announcement of Navarro's alleged involvement in the crime comes after U.S. marshals arrested another suspect in the case, identified as Michael McQueen, 28, in Sonoma on April 16, sheriff's spokesman Jimmy Lee said. McQueen is also being held at the Martinez Detention Facility under $2 million bail. Authorities are still investigating the killing of Callen.

Anyone with information about the case is urged to contact the sheriff's office at (925) 313-2600. Anonymous tips can also be left at (866) 846-3592.
