AUSTIN, Texas – A Texas woman suspected in the fatal shooting of professional cyclist Anna Moriah ‘Mo’ Wilson at an Austin home was arrested in Costa Rica and transported back to the United States on Saturday, the U.S. Marshals Service said.

According to authorities, 34-year-old Kaitlin Marie Armstrong arrived to the Houston area around 4:30 p.m. Saturday afternoon.

Officials say she was picked up from the airport and taken to the Harris County Jail where she will see a judge before she is transferred to Austin.

She is expected to face a murder charge.

Armstrong was arrested Wednesday at a hostel on Santa Teresa Beach in Provincia de Puntarenas, the Marshals Service said in a statement.

“The Marshals Service elevated the Kaitlin Armstrong investigation to major case status early in this investigation, which likely played a key role in her capture after a 43-day run,” said U.S. Marshal for the Western District of Texas Susan Pamerleau.

According to police, Anna Moriah ‘Mo’ Wilson, 25, was found dead May 11, and on May 19, Austin police issued a murder warrant for Armstrong.

Authorities said Armstrong sold her vehicle May 13, then flew from Austin to Houston shortly after being questioned that day by authorities about Wilson’s death. She then flew to New York before using a fraudulent passport to fly from Newark, New Jersey, to San Jose, Costa Rica, on May 18, the service said.
