The Latest: FBI adds Los Angeles man to 10 Most Wanted list

CHICAGO (AP) — The Latest on the FBI's 10 Most Wanted Fugitives list (all times local):

4:30 p.m.

A Los Angeles man accused of killing his pregnant girlfriend and her unborn child last month has been named to the FBI's 10 Most Wanted Fugitives list.

Authorities allege Philip Patrick Policarpio committed the crime while on parole for a 2001 conviction for assault with a firearm and other violations. The FBI says the 39-year-old may have traveled to Las Vegas and has previous ties to the Philippines.

Also added to the list was Luis Macedo of suburban Chicago, who is suspected in the gang-related 2009 slaying of a 15-year-old.

FBI Director James Comey announced the news Thursday in Chicago. The FBI says 508 people have been on the list, which was established in March 1950, and 475 fugitives have since been apprehended.

This story has been corrected to show that Policarpio's 2001 conviction was for assault with a firearm and other violations, not attempted murder.

A Chicago-area man suspected of taking part in the killing of a teenager who was beaten and shot before his body was set on fire has been added to the FBI's 10 Most Wanted Fugitives list.

Luis Macedo of Oak Lawn is charged with first-degree murder in the 2009 slaying of 15-year-old Alex Arellano.

Authorities contend Macedo was a member of the Latin Kings street gang that confronted the teen as he walked down a street. They have said the boy told the group he was not affiliated with any gang and then was beaten with bats and chased into an abandoned building. He was shot and his body was set on fire.

Other suspects in the case have been arrested, convicted and sentenced to prison terms.
