HOLTON — Authorities say a woman involved in a collision that killed three people in Kansas has been captured in Nebraska.
Jackson County, Kansas, Sheriff Tim Morse says in a news release that 49-year-old Maria Perez-Marquez, of Omaha, was arrested by U.S. Marshals Tuesday in Nebraska. Details of where she was arrested were not immediately released.
Perez-Marquez is charged in Kansas with three counts of involuntary manslaughter after a crash in November near Holton that killed the mother, sister and uncle of two Kansas high school football players shortly after the family watched the boys’ Sabetha team win a state football championship. Two other people were injured.
Perez-Marquez failed to appear in Jackson County District Court in October.
Morse says Perez-Marquez is being held in Omaha awaiting an extradition hearing.
