TROY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – A Troy man accused of killing his estranged wife and then trying to outrun the law on a congested New Jersey highway was returned to local custody.
Campos’s brother told NEWS10 ABC the date of the November attack was the day the couple was to finalize their divorce.
“A tragic set of events for the family, and our hearts go out to them,” Rensselaer County District Attorney Joel Abelove said.
According to police, Campos fled the Capital Region and was spotted downstate by the Palisades Interstate Parkway Police Department. He then led police on a high-speed pursuit and was ultimately captured in Bergen County, New Jersey, police said.
Abelove said the case will be brought before a grand jury, and Campos could face more charges for allegedly trying to evade police. He remains in the Rensselaer County Jail without bail.
Campos still faces charges in New Jersey as a result of the pursuit.
