MEXICO CITY (AP) - A Mexican official says that convicted drug trafficker Sandra Avila Beltran, known as the "Queen of the Pacific," has returned to Mexico from the U.S. and has been handed over to authorities.

The official in the Attorney General's Office spoke Tuesday on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the press.

Avila's lawyer says she faces a money-laundering charge in Guadalajara, Mexico.

She was sentenced to 70 months in prison in Miami federal court last month and released for time served in Mexico.

Avila pleaded guilty in April to being an accessory after the fact in an organization that included Juan Diego Espinosa Ramirez, her boyfriend at the time. Espinosa pleaded guilty in 2009 to cocaine trafficking charges.
