Posted: Updated:

A man wanted for murder in Mexico has been returned to that country to face charges after being apprehended in Tucson by Deputy U.S. Marshals. Efren Martinez-Valencia, a resident alien of the U.S., was arrested on April 29. He was returned to Mexico after federal extradition proceedings were concluded in U.S. District Court.

Homicide is an extraditable offense under the Extradition Treaty between the U.S. and Mexico.
