ROSWELL, N.M. (AP) - A Roswell man accused of killing the mother of his 3-year-old son before fleeing with the boy is now facing a federal charge. The FBI says it has issued an arrest warrant for 32-year-old Jorge Rico-Ruvira on one count of unlawful flight to avoid prosecution. Police believe Rico-Ruvira killed 27-year-old Isela Mauricio-Sanchez and left with their young son, who is still missing. Rico-Ruvira is also facing charges of first-degree murder in state court. Authorities say he was possibly headed to Mexico, where he has family.
