El Paso attempted murder suspect arrested in Boerne

Carlos Macias, 41, accused of attempting to strangle his ex-wife while she slept

A man suspected of attempting to strangle his ex-wife in El Paso, Texas has been arrested in Boerne.

Carlos Macias, 41, of El Paso, was arrested Wednesday by members of the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force.

In September 2012, the El Paso Police Department began investigating the attempted murder of a woman.

The woman identified her ex-husband, Macias, as the attacker, along with another man. Police said Macias and another man entered the apartment of his ex-wife and began to strangle her while she slept.

The Lone Star Fugitive Task Force initiated an investigation along with the El Paso Police Department and the El Paso County Sheriff's Office, determining Macias had fled from El Paso to San Antonio.

Investigators said Macias had been residing with a friend in the 900 block of Kendalia. Additional information indicated he was working in construction in Boerne. The task force arrested Macias while he was working.

Macias is being held in the Kendall County Jail, pending his extradition to El Paso.
