SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The husband of a U.S. Customs and Border Protection agent has been arrested in Tijuana for allegedly stabbing her to death, it was reported Saturday.
Jesus Arteaga Garcia, 30, was sheltered by his sister and parents in Baja California since the murder of Maribel Arteaga, 28, during a domestic dispute at their Chula Vista home on Dec. 9, 2009, according to Deputy U.S. Marshal Steve Jurman.
The young mother had identified her estranged husband as the assailant just before she died, police said. He was arrested by Mexican federal police Friday, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported.
Chula Vista police and both U.S. and Mexican federal police tracked Arteaga Garcia to Sinaloa and then back to Tijuana, where his family reportedly told police that the young mother "got what she deserved," according to the newspaper.
Jurman told the Union-Tribune that his counterparts in Mexico are anxious to arrest suspected felons from the United States. "Gone are the days when a fugitive can run across the border and be sheltered for the rest of their life," he said.
