SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — The man suspected of killing his stepmother and burying her body in a Tijuana backyard has been arrested on probation violations.

Aaron Seth Juarez, 20, was taken into custody in San Diego Thursday. He was also wanted by the Deputy Attorney General of Justice in Tijuana on suspicion of killing Fernanda González Serrano in February.

San Diego Police are currently working to return Juarez back to Mexico.

González was last heard from on Feb. 2. Shortly after her disappearance, her husband was treated for a gunshot wound in San Diego, but was reportedly unable to answer any questions.


After social media posts searching for González, her sister, Erika, received a call not to keep searching, and that González, "was already dead and in the back of her yard."

Erika and her father went to González’ Tijuana home and started digging in the backyard, where they discovered González’ body.

Mexican police believed Juarez may have returned to the U.S. on Feb. 23.
