Fargo police have made an arrest in the murder of Fargo dentist Philip Gattuso .

41-year-old Michael Nakvinda was arrested this morning in Oklahoma City, after police got reports of a vehicle with Oklahoma license plates pulling what appeared to be Gattuso's missing Porsche convertible.

Nakvinda is being held in an Oklahoma City jail on suspicion of murder. Prosecutors are looking at more charges, and formal charges are expected Monday.

Gattuso's body was found last Monday night in his Fargo home. Authorities said it had been ransacked and his silver Porsche was missing. They say 49-year-old Gattuso died of a head injury, and that there is still more left in the investigation.

Police won't say if Gattuso and Nakvinda knew each other, or if he acted alone. Authorities have still not located the Gattuso's silver porsche.
