Gallia County fugitive apprehended in Mexico
Felipe Beach - Captured in Mexico
(WOUB) - A Gallia county man wanted for trying to kill his ex-girlfriend is found hiding out in Mexico.

The U.S. Marshals service says 36-year old Felipe Beach was apprehended Thursday night by marshals with the help of Mexican police.

Beach is facing attempted murder charges in Gallia County stemming from a January assault which left a woman in critical condition.

After he failed to appear in court on those charges, Gallia County authorities asked for help from the U.S. Marshals service in finding him.

Beach is currently being held in Arizona while awaiting extradition proceedings.
