Police in Nicaragua have arrested a New York man who was recently added to the Federal Bureau of Investigation's 10 Most Wanted List for a double murder on Long Island.

Juan Elias Garcia is an alleged member of the MS 13 gang.

The FBI says Garcia and two other members of the gang shot and killed 19 year old Vanessa Argueta and her 2-year-old son back in 2010.

Investigators say Garcia had been dating Argueta, but they had a falling out.

One of the other gang members pleaded guilty to the murders, while the other was convicted in a jury trial.

Garcia was just added to the Most Wanted List on Wednesday. ClientIP:,, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
