Man deported after serving murder sentence caught at border

January 31, 2019 GMT

DOUGLAS, Ariz. (AP) — Authorities say a man deported to Mexico after serving 15 years in prison in Arizona on a second-degree murder conviction is accused of trying to illegally re-enter the United States.

A federal criminal complaint filed Monday against 36-year-old Moises Cisneros-Llamas accuses him of attempted illegal re-entry by a removed alien.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection said Wednesday that CBP officers arrested Cisneros-Llamas at the Douglas port of entry Sunday after they identified him as a previous deportee.

An attorney representing Cisneros-Llamas didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment on the allegation.

Arizona Department of Corrections records indicate Cisneros-Llamas was imprisoned in 2002 for his murder conviction in Maricopa County and that he was released in 2017.
