SALT LAKE CITY – The suspect in the shooting death of a Utah sheriff’s deputy has been arrested after being found asleep inside a shed.

A spokeswoman for the Millard County sheriff’s office says 37-year-old Roberto Miramontes Roman was captured around 8 a.m. Wednesday in Beaver County.

Lindsay Mitchell says Roman was taken into custody along with another suspect, Ruben Chavez.

Chavez is the owner of a Cadillac that was stopped early Tuesday by Millard County sheriff’s deputy Josie Greathouse Fox, who was shot dead.

Roman, the subject of an intensive manhunt, has been charged with capital murder.

Beaver County Sheriff Cameron Noel told The Salt Lake Tribune that deputies found both suspects asleep inside a shed.

    RJPIEL: I could not have said it any better!!!!!!!!!!! I am a rookie and am blessed to have a father who served 30 + years in LE. One thing he taught me was that we cannot allow our negative emotions to cloud us from doing our job properly. We are not the judge jury or executioners unless it comes to saving our life or the lives of others. I hope to the good Lord above that I never have to face a situation like this, but I know that the possibility is there. My mouth is my weapon, and if utilized properly can really diffuse a of situations. Thank you so much for speaking with true honesty and wisdom. We all have a lot to learn from you!!!!!!!!!!!

    I can tell "Copper380" is unfamilar with our American Justice System. Or, maybe young, nieave, or all of the aforementioned. It's interesting that traditional cops voice their true feelings in writing. Not that I disagree with them at all, but the cops I would rather not work with (at least till they grow up a little) are the ones that have faith in a 380 cal.? Copper, the justice system works best when we (the protectors of our citizens) handle it on the spot. Not only does this help our economy, it helps the survivor's rest a little easier. Remember, I'm talking about a cold blooded cop killer not a shoplifter. The Seattle officer saved four police officer's familys' a living hell. That was the right thing to do. "Romans 13" We don't yeild the sword in vein, but we do protect God's children form evil! To many rookies never figure this out.

    Just wondering? Since this was a manhunt for the murder of a LEO. Why did'nt this illegal alien resist and pull a weapon? Would have been no serious inquiry at all. Justice would have been served....permanently. Wondering what else was in the shed? Hoes, rakes and shovels...have killed people before. Well the good news was what happened in Massachussts last nite.
