The family of a murdered City College student spoke out Monday saying the suspect, the victim's  estranged husband, "Needs to be stuck in jail and never let out.”

Authorities arrested Armando Perez in Tijuana Sunday, a year and a half after the murder of 19-year-old Diana Gonzalez.

Janette Gonzalez says it is too hard to put into words what she would like to say to Perez.

Although his capture gives her family some closure, she says it also brings back many bad memories.

“He hurt my sister in so many different ways," said Janette Gonzalez. "And when you love somebody you're not supposed to hurt them so I just…have so much hate against him."

Authorities on both sides of the border had been searching for Perez since Gonzalez's murder in October 2010.

Tijuana police arrested Perez, 39, early Sunday morning along Avenida Revolucion in downtown TJ.

The 19-year-old's parents were there Sunday when Mexican authorities announced Perez' capture.

Gonzalez' mother clung to his arm asking him repeatedly why he hurt her daughter.

Diana Gonzalez was taking courses at San Diego City College to become a nurse. She had just given birth to a baby girl a few months before she was found stabbed to death in a campus bathroom.

Her sister says she's angry, hurt and frustrated over something her family will never get back.

“He's going to be where he needs to be, but what about my sister?" asked Janette Gonzales. "It's not going to make her comeback. Nothing…not even that.”
