A Pennsylvania man placed on the U.S. Marshals Service 15 Most Wanted Fugitives list for the execution-style murder of his estranged wife has been arrested in Bologna, Italy.

The marshals service said 42-year-old Miguel Torres had been charged with first-degree murder in Reading, Pa., following the September 2005 slaying.

After Barbara Torres obtained a protective order against her husband, he allegedly used a spare key to enter his wife's vehicle, hiding in the backseat until she left work. Authorities said she spotted Mr. Torres when she approached, and she attempted to flee, but he got out of the vehicle and walked up behind her and shot her in the head.
