ADEL, GA (WALB) - When a police tag reader alerted on a car Tuesday in the Adel Walmart parking lot, officers could not have known that the woman driving the car was suspected of killing her husband, in Elkhart, Indiana.

After sifting through her story, in which she claimed to be Lucy Baker, officers arrested Angelica Castillo, 39, who was the subject of a nationwide lookout from Indiana, for the murder of her husband, Elder Castillo, Sr.

Adel Police did get a computer hit on Lucy Baker, however, related to a forgery case in Tifton, and forgery warrants had been issued there for her.

When they checked her fingerprints at the Cook County Jail, they knew she was not Lucy Baker, but was really Angelica Castillo, of Elkhart, Indiana.

Castillo had been living at Sunshine Acres Trailer Park in Cook County for about two weeks.

Castillo is being held in the Cook County Jail awaiting an Indiana extradition hearing.
