LOS ANGELES (AP) - Federal authorities say they have arrested
and deported a Mexican national wanted in his native country for
investigation of the shooting death of his aunt and teenage cousin
six years ago.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement says in a statement
that Juan Alvarado Gutierrez was turned over Friday to officials
from the Mexican attorney general's office at the border crossing
in San Ysidro amid tight security.
The 33-year-old suspect was arrested Wednesday on immigration
charges in Santa Rosa. Officials say he had been previously
deported to Mexico in July 2002 after serving time in California
for unlawful sex with a minor.
ICE says he returned to California after the killing of his aunt
and 14-year-old cousin at a church in Guanajuato state.
