GLEN BURNIE, Md. — A married couple wanted for the murder of two men in Glen Burnie have been arrested after one of the husband was found in Mexico and the other turned themselves in.
19-year-old Edwin Javier Hurtado-Valdez and his wife, 18-year-old Cambrea May Lynn Sieck, were wanted after 24-year-old Antwan Troy Briggs and Antwon Elijah Queen were found dead at the Southgate Apartments in Glen Burnie on Sunday.
Homicide detectives with the Anne Arundel County Police Department said earlier this week they had discovered Hurtado-Valdez had fled the country and went to Mexico. After learning this, they started disseminating wanted fliers to the southern United States in hopes of finding him.
On Wednesday, the State Police of Tamaulipas, Mexico said they believed Hurtado-Valdez was in Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas, Mexico, which is near the U.S./Mexican border of Laredo, Texas. Hurtado-Valdez was arrested that night in Mexico and was then taken back to the United States where the U.S. Marshals took custody of him.
Hurtado-Valdez is expected to be extradited back to Anne Arundel County in the following weeks, but a specific date has not been announced at this time.
When Hurtado-Valdez was arrested, his wife was not with him. Homicide detectives continued to search for Sieck who was wanted for being an accessory after the murder. Police believed she had fled Maryland, but did not know where she was. On Thursday, the Fugitive Apprehension Team was able to convince her family to have Sieck turn herself in.
On Friday, Sieck went to the Anne Arundel County Police Eastern District and turned herself in just after midnight. She is currently incarcerated at the Anne Arundel County Detention Center on a no bond status.
This is now the second murder suspect to head to Mexico in less than a month. Keith and Valeria Smith, who were both suspects in the murder of Jacquelyn Smith were arrested right before they were about to cross the U.S/Mexico border. The father-daughter duo had originally made up an elaborate story about how Jacquelyn was killed by a panhandler, but it was later revealed they had allegedly done the deed.
