GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colo. – A 46-year-old professional poker player suspected of killing his wife in Colorado more than a decade ago has been arrested at his home in Worcestershire, England.
Garfield County sheriff’s officials in Colorado says authorities are working to extradite Marcus Bebb-Jones after his arrest Wednesday on a warrant for first-degree murder, concealing death and domestic violence.
His arrest comes after a 12-year investigation into the death of his wife, Sabrina Bebb-Jones.
She disappeared in 1997 when the two were running a hotel in Grand Junction, Colo. Marcus Bebb-Jones said his wife had left following an argument.
A rancher in Garfield County found Sabrina Bebb-Jones’ skull in 2004.
