LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

The suspect in the murder of a Denver City woman is behind bars in Mexico.

Mexican media reports that authorities arrested Mario Romero in Chihuahua, Mexico last week.

Romero is accused of killing his wife, Veronica Romero.

Veronica was found dead inside her Denver City home in October of 2009.

Investigators believe Romero fled with the couple's son, Mitchell.

The boy later died a month later in a traffic accident in Ojinaga, Mexico.

Reports say the boy was travelling with other family members, not his father, at the time of the accident.

Authorities are now working to bring Romero back to the U.S. to face charges.
