A Tucson man accused of killing his girlfriend then leaving the state is now back in Pima County.
Steve Malone was escorted by sheriff's deputies around 6 p.m. Sunday. He was flown in from Los Angeles where he was captured several days after the shooting.
Neighbors say Steve Malone and Tina Soto had a rocky relationship. One neighbor who did not want to appear on camera says Tina had separated from Malone for a couple of weeks right before the shooting.
Soto was shot and killed in her car while 2 of her children and her sister were inside. It's unclear what led up to the killing but court documents indicate a history of fighting between the people.
Almost a week and a half later, neighbors are still saddened and in a state of shock.
"I remember always seeing her sitting outside watching the kids play," said one neighbor. "I remember seeing him come through and his car all the time... they seemed like a normal family to me."
Tucson News Now asked Malone if he killed his girlfriend and he remained silent.
