TUCSON – U.S. Border Patrol agents say they have apprehended an undocumented immigrant who had previously been convicted of murder.
Authorities say Nahum Rivas-Rivera, 37, was convicted on first-degree murder charges in Baltimore, Maryland in 2006.
He served one year in prison, before being deported.
Agents say they captured Rivas and another man near Naco on Tuesday.
Border Patrol officials say this was Rivas’ third known attempt to re-enter the U.S. since his 2006 arrest.
