Arrest warrant issued for Omaree Varela’s stepdad

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – An arrest warrant has been issued for Omaree Varela’s stepdad.

Stephen Casaus was pulled over earlier this month for DWI and when police searched his car they found cocaine, pot and what appeared to be black tar heroin.

Casaus didn’t show up to court for pretrial services when he was supposed to and a warrant for his arrest was issued this week.

His wife Synthia Varela-Casaus is charged with kicking Omaree to death.

Casaus has not been charged in Omaree’s case. The District Attorney’s office says it’s still investigating. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
