Suspect in Emporia homicide arrested in Mexico

KSAL StaffNovember 6, 2014

A 27-year-old suspect in a Kansas homicide has been detained in Mexico, where police say he fled after the killing.

Police said efforts are underway to extradite Gabino Ruiz-Ascencio to the U.S. for questioning in the April 2013 death of 25-year-old Adrian Peralta in Emporia.

Police said Wednesday that Ruiz-Ascencio was arrested in Zacapu, in the state of Michoacan, on minor charges and computer checks showed an arrest warrant from Emporia. Details of the arrest and when it occurred were not available.

Peralta and 22-year-old Michael Koy were shot at their home April 13, 2013. Koy survived, while Peralta died five days later.

Emporia police say the shootings apparently were drug and gang related.

Ruiz-Ascencio does not yet have an attorney.
