STOCKTON, Calif. (AP) - A 53-year-old California man has been deported to Mexico to face allegations that he participated in the slayings of eight municipal government officials 13 years ago.

Genaro Olaguez was released from the San Joaquin County Jail on Monday, where he was serving time for two marijuana-related charges. He was immediately taken into custody by U.S. immigration authorities.

Olaguez, whose last name is also listed as Olaguez-Rendon, was arrested by a U.S. Marshals Service task force in December on a warrant from Mexican officials on suspicion of killing a commissioner and seven other city officials in Sinaloa, Mexico, in May 2000.

The Stockton Record reports ( immigration officials worked with the San Joaquin County Deputy District Attorney to convict him on the U.S. charges before he was released to Mexican authorities.
