Ortiz fled from state troopers and hid in the parking lot of a Laredo hotel, where he was arrested.

Texas authorities charged a US Border Patrol supervisor with murder following what they called a two-week serial killing spree that left four female sex workers dead and ended when a fifth woman escaped at a gas station and found help.

Alaniz would not specify how the victims were killed but said the "methods and means" of the slayings were similar.

"This case broke open yesterday with an aggravated kidnapping and then a lookout for a suspect, in this case Ortiz", said Isidro R. "Chilo" Alaniz, Webb County district attorney.

The bodies of two of the women were discovered earlier this month along Interstate 35 in rural northwest Webb County, the Laredo Morning Times reported, while the third and fourth were found in the same area this weekend.

A woman allegedly abducted by Juan David Ortiz had been able to escape and alert officers, according to local media reports. Authorities are still trying to determine a motive for the killings. Nationalities of the others are not yet known.
