WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- An illegal immigrant from Mexico who is accused of murder in his native country has been deported from Kansas.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement says 37-year-old Sergio Arturo Moreno-Perez was transferred Tuesday to Mexican law enforcement authorities.
The Wichita resident was wanted on a 2006 warrant for a homicide in Chihuahua, Mexico.
Moreno first entered the United States illegally in 1978, but later became a permanent resident. ICE says he was deported three times between 1995 and 2002 and convicted twice of illegally re-entering the U.S.
Moreno has multiple felony convictions for crimes in the Wichita area, including burglary and robbery. He was turned over to ICE upon his release from prison.
