U.S. Marshals arrested 15 Most Wanted murder suspect Luis Octavio Frias Wednesday night in Jalisco, Mexico.

A tip generated from the television show "In Pursuit with John Walsh" led officials to Frias.

Frias, 34, allegedly stabbed his ex-wife, Janett Reyna, 41 times in front of her children in August 2013.

Reyna, a former police officer with the Blackwell Police Department, filed a protection order against Frias just two days prior to her death.

Frias has a warrant out of Kay County.

The Kay County Sheriff's Office sought the assistance of the U.S. Marshals to find him.

“The arrest of Luis Octavio Frias allows a wounded community to start healing and stands as a testament to the crucial role the public plays in helping us locate and arrest dangerous fugitives,” said U.S. Marshals Service Acting Deputy Director David Anderson. “We especially thank John Walsh and his team for their commitment to law enforcement and for featuring Frias on his show.”

Frias arrived back on U.S. soil Thursday and was placed by U.S. Marshals in the same handcuffs used by the Blackwell Police Department to take him into custody.

“In so many ways, those handcuffs represented poetic justice not only for the victim, but for her children, her brothers and sisters in blue, and her community,” said U.S. Marshal Johnny Lee Kuhlman.

Frias is currently in U.S. Marshals custody in Dallas awaiting extradition back to Oklahoma.
