OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – A couple wanted on a murder charge in Oklahoma City has been arrested in Mexico.
The U.S. Marshals Service said Saturday that 35-year-old Adrian Escajeda and 30-year-old Della Nichols were arrested with the help of Mexican authorities.
The marshals service provided no details about the arrest, but said the two are in jail pending extradition back to Oklahoma County.
Online court records do not list an attorney for either Escajeda or Nichols.
Murder charges were filed Friday against the two for the Dec. 5 death of 21-year-old Ulises Lopez. Police say Lopez was found dead inside a home in southwest Oklahoma City by officers responding to a call of unknown trouble.
