A murder suspect from the state of New York was arrested Sunday in Omaha. New York state police say Garbriel Lopez-Perez was taken into custody after getting off a bus.
Lopez-Perez is accused of stabbing his girlfriend to death in Wappinger Falls, New York. The victim is his girlfriend, 27-year old Maria DeLaPaz Ruiz Alvarez. Wappinger Falls is about 65 miles north of New York City.
New York state police interviewed Lopez-Perez Monday. They obtained a warrant charring him with second-degree murder. Lopez-Perez will now face extradition proceedings in Nebraska.
