FBI names fugitive to nation’s Top 10
LAS VEG AS: A fugitive in a 2008 Las Vegas murder was named to the FBI Top 10 most wanted list, amid pleas for justice from tearful relatives of the mother of four he is accused of killing when she tried to leave him.
“This has been a horrible crime,” Assistant Clark County Sheriff Tom Roberts said of the beating and asphyxiation death of 29-year-old Sherryl Sacueza.
Aaron Rouse, the FBI agent in charge in Nevada, announced a US$100,000 (RM419,250) reward for information leading to the arrest of Jesus Roberto Munguia.
Sacueza’s hands had been bound and her skull was fractured before she was found dead early July 2, 2008, in the bloody back seat of an SUV parked at the house Sacueza had shared with Munguia and their four children.
Authorities said Sacueza left the house in the vehicle with Munguia, and her body was found with rope, a sweat shirt and jumper cables wrapped around her neck and the vehicle seat headrest. She had asphyxiated.
Munguia, now 41, was named within a week in a local murder warrant and a federal arrest warrant. — AP
