FBI names fugi­tive to na­tion’s Top 10

The Star Malaysia - - World -

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
