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.

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.

    R.I.P Officer Fox. Glad to hear they caught the fugitive and hopefully he will be properly prosecuted and executed.

    Glad these idiots were caught. Now the only problem is we are going to have to pay for their legal team and feed them. I wish the system had a better means to get rid of subjects like these and truly help society.

    We are a "melting pot" of legal immigrants, not illegal! I find it amusing how the Federal government is willing to put their efforts into going after Sheriff Joe Arpaio in Arizona, but make very little effort in deporting illegal aliens.

    I also agree that our borders need to be sealed a lot tighter than they are right now. Although we are a melting pot, our pot runneth over.

    ZIGI's link says it all so well and one I fully agree with. Get the illegals out of the country, or better in this case, dump his dead carcass over the fence and let it send a message that we are not going to stand for this crap any more. RIP Deputy Fox and best wishes to his family during their time of grieving.

    Too bad he wasn't found with a few bullet holes in him. He'll probably be deported again and end up on double secret probation or something. But extra credit for the deputies who caught him and everyone who helped. One less POS off the streets means one more of us that goes home at end of shift.

    Government sanctioned killing of the deputy. The United States government and all sanctuary states and cities, including Utah should share the guilt of this deputies death which did not have to happen if our borders were secure rathere than Cart Blanch being given to all who care to cross.
    Like it or not, the border patrol's hands are tied by upper management.
