DERBY LINE — A man wanted in connection with the killing of a woman in Connecticut was nabbed in Derby Line on Monday.
The U.S. Customs and Border Protection notified the Vermont State Police at around 2:25 p.m. that a fugitive had been apprehended at the border by Canadian authorities after attempting to flee the United States on foot.
The suspect was identified as Cory Ramos, 30, of Bridgeport, Connecticut.
Ramos was wanted in Connecticut on a warrant for two counts of violating a protective order related to a former girlfriend, as well as being wanted for questioning in connection with the homicide of a woman that took place on October 18 at her home in Bridgeport.
Ramos was known by police to have ties to Rutland, including his recent involvement with law enforcement in the area and a pending criminal case on charges including sexual assault without consent and second-degree unlawful restraint.
He fled Connecticut following the homicide in a Vermont-registered vehicle, which was later found abandoned near the Vermont-Canada border.
VSP and the Rutland City Police Department were actively looking for Ramos.
Following Ramos’s apprehension by Canadian authorities, he was returned to the custody of U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents.
Responding troopers took Ramos into state custody on suspicion of being a fugitive from justice.
He was jailed without bail pending a court appearance in Newport today.Are you on Instagram? Cool. So are we. CLICK HERE to follow us for a behind the scenes look at Newport Dispatch.
