DPS announces arrest of a Top 10 fugitive

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Extradition is pending for a Texas Top 10 Most Wanted suspect caught in Mexico and accused of killing of his estranged wife in Houston.

The Texas Department of Public Safety on Wednesday announced the arrest of 42-year-old Esequiel Rios Villareal. He was sought over the February 2006 shooting death of Benedicta Gonzales.

DPS says Villareal, who was arrested Aug. 11 in Huetamo, Michoacan, faces extradition proceedings in the next 60 days.

Villareal previously served prison time for the 1990 slaying of a man, also in Harris County.
