Mexican woman extradited to Washington on murder, manslaughter and rape charges

Mexico City, Mexico — In compliance with the Extradition Treaty signed between Mexico and the United States, a Mexican woman has been returned to the U.S. to face charges. On Sunday, the Attorney General’s Office of the Republic (FGR) extradited Araceli “M”.

She was handed over to U.S. federal agents at the Mexico City International Airport for transfer back to the state of Washington. In a statement, the FGR reported that Araceli “M” was wanted by the Superior Court of the State of Washington in Franklin County for first degree of aggravated murder, manslaughter, rape of a minor and injuries to a minor.

“From April to November 2020, Araceli “M” lived with her partner and his three youngest children in an apartment located in the city of Pasco, Washington. During this time, she raped one of the minors on several occasions, while the minor’s father watched.

“Likewise, the defendant and her partner physically beat and tortured the children and even caused the death of one of them. This person was arrested in Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco in March of this year. Subsequently, the Government of Mexico granted the extradition of the requested person to the Government of the United States,” they reported in a statement.

The handover of the fugitive was carried out at the Mexico City International Airport (AICM), to the US agents designated for her transfer to that country.
