JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Police have arrested the husband of a young mother found dead in the San Pablo Apartment complex.
Police say 28-year-old Jose Valle beat and strangled his wife, 18-year-old Rosa Garcia, last week at the couple's home. It happened after an argument.
Valle, according to police, went to his sister's house on Atlantic Boulevard to drop off their child. Valle then told his sister to go back to their home to check on his wife.
The sister went to the couple's home and discovered the body.
Police say Valle fled to his other sister's house in Palm Beach County where he was arrested on Saturday.
Valle faces murder charges.
Authorities say he's been deported from the United States on two occasions, once for domestic violence in California, and a second time in Texas for being an undocumented immigrant.
Police are working to get him extradited to Jacksonville.
