Dilan Ugalde, of the 3600 block of West 62nd Place, was apprehended by members of the Chicago Police Department and the Great Lakes Regional Fugitive Task Force on January 26 in the 1900 block of North Mark Avenue in Elgin.

He is due in Central Bond Court at 26th and California on Friday, January 28.

In the June 11 slaying, a 20-year-old woman, Fhee Hernandez-Castillo, was sitting in the passenger seat of a car with her boyfriend in the 4700 block of South Rockwell at about 8:49 p.m. when a man approached and opened fire, yelling gang slogans, police said. Hernandez-Castillo was hit by gunfire in the neck and left hand.

After the shooting, her boyfriend drove off and stopped at the Shell gas station at 47th and California, where CFD paramedics arrived.

Hernandez-Castillo was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital and was listed in critical condition, but she was pronounced dead at 10:28 p.m.

Ugalde is the second person charged in connection with the murder. Back in September, police arrested 19-year-old Roberto Rojas and said he was part of a gang-related scheme to block cars near 47th and Rockwell and screen for rival gang members. Police said Rojas stood in front of the victims' vehicle, block them from driving away, while Ugalde and a 16-year-old boy shouted gang slogans at them from the side of the vehicle.

Rojas is currently in custody of the Cook County Department of Corrections. His next court date is set for March 2 at 26th and California.
