Man extradited to U.S. from Mexico over slaying of border patrol agent

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 08/01/2014 - 10:06
(Reuters) - A Mexican man has been extradited to the United States in connection with the fatal shooting of a U.S. border patrol agent during a late-night gun battle near the U.S.-Mexican border in Arizona four years ago, federal prosecutors said on Thursday. Ivan Soto-Barraza has been charged with first-degree murder in connection with the fatal shooting of U.S. border patrol agent Brian Terry in 2010, the U.S. Department of Justice said in a statement. The case drew international attention when two AK-47s found at the scene of the shooting were traced back to the botched "Fast and Furious" gun-trafficking investigation by the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
