That vehicle would then get back on the highway, the sheriff’s office said. The deputy caught up with the vehicle when it was parked at a closed business.

The deputy learned the occupants of that vehicle, McQueen and Uriostegui, were wanted on murder charges out of Raleigh.

They were taken into custody without incident and transported to the Gillespie County Jail, the sheriff’s office said.

While in Texas, McQueen and Uriostegui were indicted by a Wake County Grand Jury on first-degree murder and three counts assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill or inflict serious injury.

They were transported back to Wake County on Thursday where they were transferred to local law enforcement custody at RDU International Airport.

Both are being held without bond in the Wake County Detention Center and are scheduled to appear in Superior Court on Dec. 9 at 9:30 a.m.
