REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – A FilAm fugitive suspected of murder has been arrested in Taiwan.

Giovani Corpuz, 41, of Omao, Hawaii was arrested in Taiwan as he was travelling to the Philippines.

Corpuz has been accused of killing 88-year-old Amby Cruz on New Year’s Eve.

Police allege that Corpuz had shot Cruz at his home, where he was found dead on early New Year’s Day.

Corpuz then attempted to go to the Philippines, but in an international effort, he was arrested while transiting through Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport.

Corpuz will soon be extradited back to Hawaii to face the charges.
