Albuquerque, N.M. • Authorities in Texas have arrested a man accused of using aliases for 27 years to avoid apprehension in a New Mexico killing.

Albuquerque police say 47-year-old Ramone Astorga Ramirez was taken into custody Monday in the Midland, Texas, area and will be extradited to New Mexico.

Ramirez was identified as a suspect after 27-year-old Paul Dubose was shot to death in 1986 during an altercation outside an Albuquerque apartment complex. He was indicted in 1987 on a first-degree murder charge.

Ramirez is from Mexico, and authorities say he used various aliases over the years to avoid apprehension.

The Albuquerque Police Department's Cold Case Unit took the case 11 months ago and followed up on leads with assistance from the FBI, the Texas Rangers, the Texas Department of Public Safety and Midland police.

Authorities didn't immediately say how they found Ramirez, and it was unclear if he had an attorney.
