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.

    I am glad they got him, but to say the truth... I was hoping for a "faster" ending...
    Even if he fries at the end, as I am hoping... This will be years into the future, years this A** hole doesn't deserve... He didn't give our sister that chance...

    I was truly hoping he will give the guys all the justifications... trash scumb bag.

    I saw the KSL.com photos from his myspace, what is an illegal alien doing with those guns, i saw pistols, SBR, and AK47....its time our country stopped providing so much opportunity for those who are not allowed to be here, expand immigration enforcement to local police.

    Should have woken him up and then shot the POS. That isn't spoken as a LEO but someone who is pi$$ed off at this garbage killing our LEO's. Now this POS will be treated like a damn hero in prison for wasting a cop.
