Two Mexican nationals extradited to L.A. and Texas to face murder charges

Mexico City, Mexico — Two people wanted for criminal matters in U.S. courts have been extradited. On Wednesday, the State Attorney of the Republic (FGR) reported on the extradition of two Mexican nationals.

Pursuant to the Extradition Treaty signed between Mexico and the United States, two Mexican nationals required for their responsibility in committing the crime of homicide were extradited to the government of that country in different criminal cases.

In the first case, Arturo “G” is wanted by a Texas court for the stabbing death of three people in El Paso. Arturo “G” was arrested in Chihuahua in April of 2020 and held in a Mexico prison for extradition purposes. He has been handed over to U.S. authorities to face charges in the Court of the 34th Judicial District for the Countay of El Paso.

Julio “A” was also extradited to the U.S. Wednesday on charges of homicide. According to the FGR, Julio “A” is wanted in a Los Angeles court after he attended a party in December 2011 where he sexually harassed two women.

When the women left the party, Julio “A” is alleged to have run over one of them as she walked down the street. She later died in hospital. Julio “A” was captured in January of this year in Tecámac, State of Mexico.

Both men were handed over at the Mexico City International Airport (AICM) to the U.S. agents designated for their transfer to that country.
