Suspect in UNR prof killing in custody in Mexico

SPARKS, Nev. (AP) ” The man named as a suspect in the killing University of Nevada, Reno professor Judy Calder is in custody in Mexico. Police said Tuesday efforts are under way to extradite him to Nevada.

Calder lived in Incline Village.

Mexican police arrested Mohamed Kamalaudeem, also known as Ricky Barge, in Mexico City on a provisional warrant based on the original arrest warrant Sparks Police issued last week for the murder of Calder.

Police commander Steve Asher says the U-S Justice Department is working with Mexican authorities to bring the 50-year-old Reno man back to Sparks to face charges.

Calder was reported missing by her husband on Aug. 18. Her body was found eight days later north of Elko.
