SPOKANE, Wash. -

The Spokane County Sheriff's Office says the man detectives believed murdered a woman and her brother Monday morning in Spokane Valley is in custody. 

Detectives believed Gilberto Delgado may have fled to southern Idaho after the murders and were in contact with several law enforcement agencies along the possible travel routes. Tuesday morning, a black Dodge Dart, matching the description of the car Delgado was believed to have fled the scene in was spotted on I-15 near Pocatello. Officers contacted Delgado and he was taken into custody without incident. 

Delgado was booked into the Bingham County Jail.  ISP detectives will work with the Spokane Valley Police Department to secure search warrants for the vehicle and to extradite Delgado back to Washington to face charges. 

Deputies and detectives want to thank all of the citizens who provided tips, as well as all of the law enforcement agencies who helped locate and catch Delgado.
