Fugitive in wife’s slaying arrested in Italy

WASHINGTON (AP) — A man placed on the U.S. Marshals Service 15 Most Wanted Fugitive list for the execution-style murder of his estranged wife has been arrested in Bologna, Italy.

The Marshals Service says 42-year-old Miguel Torres had been charged with first-degree murder in Reading, Pa., following the September 2005 slaying.

Four days after Barbara Torres obtained a protective order against her husband, Miguel Torres allegedly used a spare key to enter his wife’s vehicle, hiding in the backseat until she left work. She spotted Torres when she approached and she attempted to flee, but he got out of the vehicle and allegedly walked up behind her and shot her in the head, near a county building.
