Luis Gabriel Ramos Wiki – Luis Gabriel Ramos Biography
Luis Gabriel Ramos is accused of fatally stabbing a mother and her daughter in their Yonkers apartment last weekend — less than a week after he was arrested for arson but released without bail, authorities said.
An FBI fugitive task force tracked him down in Salome, Az. on Tuesday night, and he was later charged with two counts of murder in the deaths of Isabella Triano, 70, and her 38-year-old daughter, Trisha Miller, according to Yonkers police.
He is 27 years old.
Double Murder Incident
On Monday, the relatives were found dead from apparent stab wounds by police conducting a wellness check at their home.
Police believe Ramos allegedly killed the victims sometime between Friday evening and Saturday morning.
Soon after finding the bodies, investigators identified Ramos as a suspect and located him near the southern border with the help of federal authorities.
As of Wednesday, the suspect was awaiting extradition to New York. Once in the state, he will be arraigned on two murder charges.
Luis Gabriel Ramos Arrested
At a Wednesday press briefing, Yonkers Police Commissioner John Mueller said that Ramos was arrested for felony arson in Wappingers Falls, New York, on Oct. 26.
“Unfortunately he was released on his own recognizance at the time,” Mueller said at the press conference.
“Then fast forward a week later: We have two women that are murdered,” Mueller later added.
Ryan LeGrady, a senior assistant district attorney in Dutchess County, told The Journal News that Ramos’ felony third-degree arson charge is not bailed eligible.
