A suspect was arrested in connection to a shooting at a club's Halloween party in 2011.

Police say a suspect shot and killed Jorge Urrea and wounded his wife, Haydee Marquez, at a party at Kahluas Nightclub near Camelback and 51st Avenue.

Marquez told police the couple and their friends got into an argument after they bumped into a table four people were sitting at. The argument carried out into the parking lot and that's when a Hispanic male allegedly shot her and her husband.

Marquez found pictures of the suspects on the Facebook page of the Halloween party and gave them to police.

Officers released a picture of a female suspect in a camouflage costume in July in hopes of identifying the suspects.

A tattoo of a "Grim Reaper" on the outside of the woman's forearm helped officers identify Alejandra Rivera.

Her Facebook page showed her with the tattoo and led them to a suspect, 24-year-old Luis Castaneda.

Police say his wife, Jenny Castaneda, admitted they were at the bar but thought her husband shot at the ground.

Jenny Castaneda said she later found out her husband had killed Urrea but was afraid to come forward.  

Castaneda was arrested on Nov.. 15 and faces charges of second degree murder and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
