Nicaraguan Fugitive Arrested in Costa Rica

A fugitive from Nicaraguan justice with two passports, one Costa Rican and the other Nicaraguan under two different names and differing birthdays, was arrested here. He is wanted in Nicaragua, accused of the attempted murder of his wife, a Nicaraguan prosecutor.

His Costa Rican passport says he’s 28-year-old Juan Carlos Obando Navarrete born in Upala. His Nicaraguan credentials read that he is 34-year-old Juan Carlos Obando Carballo, born in Jinotepe, department of Carazo.

The national investigative agency OIJ said that Obando was arrested Saturday not 200 yards from where he allegedly killed Alexander Araya, 26, eight years ago. OIJ accuses Obando, during an altercation with Araya, of drawing a pistol and shooting the latter dead in the bar.

According to Nicaraguan authorities, Obando was detained as a suspect in the murderous attack on his wife. According to a Nicaraguan police official, Obando had threatened her with a knife the day of the attempted murder in November, 2012. But he escaped the jail in Jinotega that same month.

The Nicaraguan authorities added that his wife, Maribel Palmas, recovered fully from injuries suffered in the attack but goes everywhere protected by a pair of police officers since Obando’s escape from jail.
