BOYNTON BEACH — A husband accused of killing his wife, and who taunted police over the search for her body, was arrested Friday when investigators found her remains in his backyard.
Police booked Roberto Colon, 66, into jail after midnight Saturday, charged with the first-degree murder of his wife, Mary Stella Gomez-Mulett, who was 44.
Investigators found the remains of Gomez-Mulett on Friday buried in Colon’s backyard, a week after investigators say he bragged, “At least you didn’t find a body,” during a search of his house.
Gomez-Mulett was an immigrant working as a caretaker for Colon’s mother, who suffered from dementia, and in exchange, he married her weeks after they had met so she could obtain U.S. citizenship, he told police.
