Adams DA To Seek Murder Prosecution In Mexico

BRIGHTON, Colo. (AP) – Adams’ County District Attorney Don Quick says he plans to pursue prosecution in Mexico for a man being sought in the murder of his wife.

Police say Claudia Ceballos was stabbed 50 times by Roman Munoz in 2009. Police say Munoz has been charged with first-degree murder in the case, but has yet to be arrested because he fled to Mexico.

Quick told a Denver TV station that Mexico is reluctant to extradite its citizens to the U.S. because of concerns over the death penalty and life in prison.
