FBI: Woman accused in Canadian husband`s death arrested in murder-for-hire scheme

July 01, 2013 - 7:41 AM

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico - The FBI says a Puerto Rican woman accused of hiring someone to kill her wealthy Canadian husband has been arrested in Spain.

FBI spokesman Moises Quinones says Aurea Vazquez Rijos was arrested Sunday at an airport in Madrid.

Vazquez has been charged by a U.S. grand jury with offering a man $3 million to kill her Canadian husband in 2005. Vazquez has denied the charges.

Real estate developer Adam Anhang was beaten and stabbed to death in a popular tourist district of the Puerto Rican capital in 2005. He was a Winnipeg native who was also CEO of an online gambling software company.

Quinones says he expects the extradition process for Vazquez to take between six and nine months.
