BOISE, Idaho -- Federal investigators say they are still working to confirm the identity of a Mexican man wanted in Idaho for the 2002 slaying of a mother and her two children.

Federal police in Mexico announced Thursday they apprehended a man believed to be Jorge Alberto Lopez Orozco in the Pacific coast state of Guerrero.

Orozco was placed on the FBI's Ten Most Wanted list in March 2005. He is charged with three counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of his girlfriend Rebecca Ramirez and her sons, age 2 and 4.

But on Friday, FBI Special Agent Timothy Fuhrman, from Salt Lake City, said detectives are still working to confirm the suspect's identity.

Idaho detectives say Ramirez and her sons were shot in the head or chest. Their charred remains were found inside a burned car Elmore County.
