CHICAGO (CBS) — Federal authorities have deported a man charged with killing a woman who refused to dance with him at a party in Mexico.
Ivan Hernandez-Barroso, 28, had escaped to the United States as a fugitive.
On Tuesday, Hernandez-Barroso was flown of a government-charter flight from Chicago to Harlingen, Texas, then escorted across the border to Matamoros, Mexico, and turned over to Mexican authorities, according to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
Back on March 12, 2005, Hernandez-Barroso was at a party in Cuerámaro, in the North-Central Mexican state of Guanajuato, where several women refused to dance with him. When the women left the party in a pickup truck, Hernandez-Barroso opened fire on the vehicle, authorities said.
One of the women was hit in the head by gunfire, and later died.
Hernandez-Barroso had a criminal record in the U.S. before that. He had been deported after serving three years in prison beginning in 2003, for assaulting a police officer with a deadly weapon, authorities said. The details of that case were not specified.
In 2008, Hernandez-Barroso was also arrested in South Bend, Ind., for driving under the influence. A criminal background check revealed that he already had been deported for the 2003 conviction, and he was sentenced to 3 years and 10 months in prison for re-entering the country after deportation.
While he was serving his sentence, federal authorities found out Hernandez-Barroso was wanted in Mexico, and he was turned over to immigration authorities when he was released from the federal prison in Oxford, Wis., on Aug. 16.
