EL PASO, Texas (AP) — Federal officials have deported a Mexican citizen wanted in his home country for murder and aggravated robbery.

Oscar Sanchez-Rodarte on Monday was turned over at an international bridge in El Paso to officials with Mexico’s Attorney General’s office.

Officials with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement say Sanchez-Rodarte’s deportation is part of expanded bi-national cooperation to identify, arrest and remove Mexican fugitives who have fled to the United States to avoid prosecution.

The 34-year-old Sanchez-Rodarte had been arrested trying to enter the United States on two different occasions in October in Arizona and New Mexico.

He was convicted in federal court in New Mexico on Dec. 12 for re-entering the country illegally after having been previously deported and then brought to El Paso to be turned over to Mexican authorities.
