Man deported after murder conviction arrested reentering U.S.

A 41-year-old man deported to Mexico in 1995 after being convicted of murder in Los Angeles County was arrested after reentering the United States illegally, federal authorities said Tuesday.

The man spent four years in state prison following the 1991 conviction and had his permanent resident card revoked, according to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

He was arrested over the weekend by Border Patrol agents at a checkpoint on California Highway 86 between Westmorland and Salton City in Imperial County. The man was detained pending federal charges for entering the country illegally, according to authorities.

His name was not released. No additional details were immediately available.
