Fugitive Pedro Argote was found dead Thursday morning, more than a week after he allegedly gunned down Maryland Circuit Court Judge Andrew Wilkinson, who awarded custody of Argote’s four children to his wife.

At approximately 11 a.m., Argote’s body was found in a heavily wooded area between Clear Spring and Bottom roads in the Williamsport, Maryland, area, the Washington County Sheriff’s Office announced in a press release.

The location is about one mile from where Argote, 49, abandoned his 2009 Mercedes GL450 after the killing, the release said.
