Police say a woman killed her live-in boyfriend and fled to Peru 23 years ago. But now she's back in Houston and facing charges.

It was just before 10am on February 23, 1990, when Gregorio Cardoza, 36, was found dead in his home in the 7100 block of Hillcroft. He had been shot in the head.

Police say their preliminary investigation identified his live-in girlfriend, Rosa San Miguel Aguilar, as the suspect in this case. Shortly after the murder, Aguilar fled to Peru.

On December 12, 2012, Aguilar was taken into custody in Peru by members of the United States Marshal's Office. Aguilar was returned to Houston on Wednesday, June 19, and admitted to HPD homicide investigators her role in Cardoza's death.

Aguilar, 63, has been charged with murder.
