SAN DIEGO (AP) – Authorities say a man wanted in the killing of his 19-year-old estranged wife at San Diego City College in 2010 has been returned to the United States from Mexico.
San Diego police said in a statement that a fugitive task force brought Armando Perez on Tuesday from Mexico City to San Diego, where he was handed over to homicide detectives and booked on suspicion of murder. He is scheduled for arraignment Wednesday.
Perez’s wife Diana Gonzalez was accosted and stabbed to death inside a men’s restroom on Oct. 12, 2010, at San Diego City College, where she was a student.
Police say Perez fled to Mexico after her death and was immediately identified as the suspect. He was arrested in Tijuana in February by authorities from both countries.
