Colley’s grave marker at June

Two years after the 83-year-old wife of a millionaire McDonald's franchisee was found bludgeoned to death at their NY hilltop estate, an arrest has been made, authorities said Monday.

Sources tell CBS2 an arrest has been made in the murder of the matriarch of a prominent NY family.

In Nov. of 2015, Lois Colley was found beaten to death inside her North Westchester home. She died of blunt force trauma.

The wealthy socialite had last been heard from about two hours before she was found, and there was no sign of forced entry, according to police. He fled to his native Guatemala less than a week after the slaying and was there for a short time, then went to Cancún, Mexico.

"The murder scene was horrendous", Westchester County District Attorney Anthony Scarpino said. A small fire extinguisher was missing from the home; investigators said Monday they believe that to have been the murder weapon. Colley's DNA was found on the fire extinguisher. "And he confronted Lois".

Gomez had worked as a day laborer about five times on the farm, though he was not employed by the family at the time of Colley's killing.

Gomez was arrested in Miami after being deported from Mexico, where he had been working illegally, according to Scarpino, who described his capture as an elaborate worldwide effort. Mexican authorities tracked him down there and deported him back to his native country.

Gomez is next due in court on December 7. Attorney information for the man wasn't immediately available.
