Mexican man wanted for setting his ex-girlfriend on fire will face charges in Texas court

Mexico City, Mexico — A Mexican man wanted in a Texas district court has been handed over to U.S. authorities. On Saturday, the Attorney General’s Office of the Republic (FGR) reported on the extradition of Óscar “G” to Texas authorities from the Mexico City International Airport.

The FGR says that in “July 2018, Óscar “G” allegedly entered the home of his ex-girlfriend without authorization where he poured gasoline on her and set her on fire. The victim later died due to the severity of the burns.”

In October 2021, Óscar “G” was located and detained in Monterrey, Nuevo León and was interned in the Oriente Men’s Preventive Prison. Subsequently, the Government of Mexico granted his extradition to the Government of the United States.

Óscar “G” was handed over to U.S. Marshalls where he was transferred to the District Court of Val Verde, Texas, to face charges.
