Man on FBI's Most Wanted list in custody

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A man on the FBI's Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list in connection with a 2008 rape and homicide has been captured and brought to Louisiana, where the crime took place. The FBI reports on its website that Jose Manuel Garcia Guevara surrendered to authorities in Mexico and was returned to Lake Charles, Louisiana, Wednesday morning. Guevara is accused of breaking into 26-year-old Wanda Barton's home in Lake Charles on Feb. 19, 2008, raping her and then stabbing her to death in the presence of her then-4-year-old stepson. Guevara was placed on the FBI's Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list last year. His was the 499th name to be added to the list, which was started in 1950. State authorities in 2008 charged Guevara with second-degree murder, aggravated rape, and aggravated burglary.
