A Maryland woman wanted for her boyfriend’s murder was detained and arrested at the Washington Dulles International Airport on Sunday.

Norma Elizabeth Rivas-Villacorta, 23, has been charged with murder in connection with the May 22, 2021 shooting death of Kayshaun Daly, 22. The U.S. Customs and Border Protection took Rivas-Villacorta in custody and later handed her over to the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority Police.

The Washington Post reports that Daly was found unresponsive in a Riverdale area home in Maryland. Police said he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Prince George police obtained a warrant for the defendant’s arrest in September 2021, but days after the shooting, she fled the country. According to an arrest warrant, police said the defendant and victim were in a relationship. Daly’s friends discovered him three days after the shooting after they hadn’t heard from him.

Family members said the relationship between the pair had been turbulent. In 2020, Rivas-Villacorta told police that Daly  “verbally abused her and choked her.”

Court documents indicate that the defendant’s family members helped her obtain a flight to El Salvador after the shooting. CBP officers were waiting for her as she got off the plane.

“This arrest illustrates how Customs and Border Protection’s border security mission helps our law enforcement partners capture dangerous wanted persons and return them to face their charges,” Daniel Escobedo, Area Port Director for CBP’s Area Port of Washington, D.C., said.
