Peter Chadwick evaded capture by the U.S. Marshals for years, but he’s now under arrested.
Orange County, California prosecutors claim that Chadick, a multimillionaire, killed his wife Quee Choo Chadwick in 2012 and dumped her body into a gas station dumpster. He was arrested near the Mexico border after a neighbor reported the husband and wife missing.
After his arrest, Chadwick paid a $1 million bail, surrendered his passports and agreed to live with this father until his court date.
But in 2015, authorities realized Chadwick had disappeared after he failed to appear for a pre-trial hearing.

Authorities found books in Chadwick’s home about how to change your identity and live on the run. After four years of searching for Chadwick, the Marshals finally captured him on Sunday in Mexico.
He now faces 25 years to life in prison for his crimes.
