KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) - The Kenosha County homicide suspect who eluded capture for nearly two weeks is jailed in Illinois and awaiting extradition proceedings.

Sheriff’s deputies caught up with Andrew Obregon on foot late Tuesday afternoon in a wooded residential area in Winthrop Harbor, Illinois with the help of multiple police dogs.

Sheriff David Beth says the 32-year-old Obregon beat a woman who was checking her father’s vacant house in western Kenosha County and took her car. Beth says Obregon was spotted in that car in Brighton and fled south into Illinois. Lake County sheriff’s deputies began chasing Obregon after he was seen driving in Zion, Illinois.

Authorities say Obregon is a suspect in the death of 37-year-old Tywon Anderson and is wanted for several robberies and auto thefts.
