LOS ANGELES (AP) - Authorities say two men wanted for murder have been turned over to Mexican officials after being caught in Los Angeles County.

Oscar Campos Nava, 22, and Ruben Israel Duran Vera, 25, are wanted for the unrelated murders of a policewoman and a teenager in Mexico.

U.S. immigration officials say the two were turned over to the Mexican attorney general's office at the border crossing in San Ysidro on Tuesday.

Duran is wanted for the death of a 17-year-old boy in 2010. He allegedly attacked the teen with a knife and machete in front of the boy's grandmother and then beat her.

Campos is accused of fatally shooting his wife, who was a police officer, on a street corner last year.

U.S. officials say both men were arrested this month.
