Adam Curtis Williams was booked into the Kleberg Co. Jail late Wednesday night. His bond is set at $1M.
Members of James and Michelle Butler's family confirmed Williams' arrest in the state of Jalisco, Mexico, Wednesday afternoon. Kleberg Co. Chief Deputy Jaime Garza told KRIS Communications that Williams' had been extradited from Mexico to Houston on Wednesday.
Garza said Williams was flown to Houston, where he appeared before a magistrate and then was transported to the Kleberg Co. Jail.
An arrest warrant for felony auto theft was issued for Williams on Tuesday. Williams is the man accused of stealing the N.H. couple's silver 2018 Chevrolet extended-cab truck and white trailer.
James and Michelle Butler were residents of N.H. passing through Texas on the way to a seasonal job in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. They were last seen alive at Padre Balli Park RV park on Oct. 15, according to the Kleberg Co. Sheriff's Office. They were reported missing Oct. 23 after relatives were unable to contact them, which they said was highly unusual.
Earlier, reports came from Piedras Negras television station Super Channel 12 about the arrest.
Williams is believed to have fled to Mexico along with Amanda Noverr, but it is not clear if Noverr was also detained.
She has not been charged in this case but is considered a person of interest.
