April 6, 2011
WESTMINSTER, Colo. (AP) – A man wanted for questioning about the slaying of an office worker in suburban Denver is behind bars in Texas.
Police in Westminster, Colo. say 71-year-old Richard Paul Stewart was located Tuesday night in the Texas Panhandle town of Littlefield.
Stewart is the ex-husband of a woman found dead inside an Edward Jones Investments office just before it opened Monday morning. Officers were called to the office after the panic alarm was pressed.
Westminster police spokeswoman Cheri Spottke (SPOT’-key) said Stewart is in custody in Texas on unrelated charges but will also be held on a warrant for investigation of murder.
Police haven’t identified his ex-wife or said how she died.
