An eastern Pennsylvania man who spent years on the lam after allegedly killing his estranged wife has been captured in Italy.
 
The U.S. Marshals Service says new information led to the arrest of longtime fugitive Miguel Torres at his home in Bologna.

  Torres had been charged with first-degree murder in the fatal shooting of Barbara Torres in 2005. Authorities say she was gunned down in a parking lot four days after obtaining a protective order against her husband.
 
Torres allegedly fled the scene in his wife's car, later switching to a rented van. The van was recovered a year later at LaGuardia Airport.
 
Torres had been among the marshals' 15 most wanted fugitives since 2011. They say the 42-year-old had been living in Italy under the name Rene Rondon.
