LAREDO, Texas (AP) -- Webb County District Attorney Isidro Alaniz is describing the U.S. Border Patrol agent suspected of killing four prostitutes as a "serial killer."

Alaniz says his office plans to charge Ortiz with four counts of murder and one count of aggravated kidnapping. Authorities say one woman Ortiz had abducted escaped early Saturday morning and she was able to alert authorities.

Webb County Sheriff Martin Cuellar says Ortiz fled from state troopers and was found hiding in a hotel parking lot in Laredo at around 2 a.m. Saturday.

Investigators are still trying to determine a motive for the killings.

Authorities didn't disclose the victims' names or nationalities and they declined to discuss the evidence or say how the women were killed.
