U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents arrested a man on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted list in connection with April beating death of his pregnant girlfriend, authorities said.

FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller announced on Monday the arrest of Patrick Policarpio after agents at the San Ysidro Port of Entry caught him entering the United States from Tijuana, Mexico.

Authorities sought Policarpio in connection with last month’s killing of the pregnant woman and her unborn child which occurred at the home of an acquaintance in the Rampart section of Los Angeles, KTLA reported.

Police investigators said the fugitive and his 32-year-old pregnant girlfriend visited a friend’s house when he allegedly started beating and punching the woman before shooting her in the head at point-blank range.

He was placed on the FBI’s Most Wanted list in early May after police charged him with the murder of his girlfriend.

At the time of the slaying, Policarpio was on parole after serving a 14-year prison sentence for a 2000 conviction stemming from an incident where he opened fire nine times into a car in Burbank, Calif.

Prior to his trial, Policarpio fled to the Philippines, where he was apprehended and in 2001 he was subsequently deported back to the United States, where he was prosecuted and ultimately convicted.
