He was taken into custody without incident at his place of employment in Brooklyn, NY. Dominguez is wanted for allegedly murdering his ex-girlfriend’s new lover in Harris County, Texas in 1988 and forfeiture for skipping bond during his trial.

“The investigation and arrest conducted by New York FBI agents led to the safe capture of Dominguez and we were pleased that we could assist our law enforcement partners in Texas,” said Special Agent Richard Kolko in New York.
