U.S. Marshals confirmed on Wednesday that they have caught a woman who has been on the run since fatally shooting her boyfriend’s love interest in Texas last month.

Authorities told VeloNews that Kaitlin Armstrong was apprehended in Costa Rica overnight. She will be extradited to the U.S. — where she will face first-degree murder charges.

Sources told VeloNews that Armstrong had plastic surgery, presumably to conceal her identity.

U.S. Marshals said in a statement that Armstrong was arrested at a hostel on Santa Teresa Beach in Provincia de Puntarenas.

Armstrong used a fraudulent passport to board a United Airlines flight from Newark International Airport to San Jose, Costa Rica on on May 18, U.S. Marshals revealed.

Last week, U.S. Marshals said they found Armstrong’s Jeep Grand Cherokee, which they learned was sold to a CarMax dealership in Austin on May 13 for $12,200. Reports indicated that Armstrong, 35, was issued a check a day after she was questioned by police regarding the death of cyclist Moriah Wilson, 24.

On May 11, Armstrong allegedly shot and killed Wilson, who was staying at a friend’s apartment in Austin at the time. Armstrong is believed to have killed Wilson upon learning she slept with her boyfriend.

Armstrong was believed to have flown out of Austin on May 14 and boarded a connecting flight to New York LaGuardia Airport.

According to reports, someone drove Armstrong to an airport in Newark, New Jersey, on May 18 — a day after a warrant was issued for her arrest. However, investigators found no outbound flight reservations listed under her name at the time.

Reports indicated that Armstrong was last seen at Camp Haven compound in Livingston Manor, which is located in upstate New York.

A $21,000 reward was being offered for information leading to Armstrong’s capture.
