Mexican extradited to California to face criminal charges of kidnapping and murder

Mexico City, Mexico — A Mexican national has been extradited to the U.S. state of California to face charges of burglary, kidnapping and murder. On Thursday, the Attorney General of the Republic (FGR) of Mexico reported on the extradition of José “T”.

According to their report, in 1996, José “T” broke into the San Bernardino home of his then-girlfriend and forced her and her two children into a vehicle at gunpoint. From California, he drove them to Mexico.

The FGR did not provide further details regarding the case, only saying that José “T” was handed over to U.S. authorities at the Mexico City International Airport (AICM), from where he was transferred to California to face criminal charges in a County of San Bernardino court.
