Two murder suspects wanted in their native Mexico for the unrelated murders of a policewoman and a teenager were turned over on Tuesday to Mexican authorities after being captured in Los Angeles County, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement announced.
Oscar Campos Nava, 22, also known as Alfonso Campos Nava, and Ruben Israel Duran Vera, 25, also known as Miguel Lopez Bera, were turned over to representatives of the Mexican Attorney General’s Office at the border crossing in San Ysidro this morning, according to ICE.
Campos, who was arrested July 9 at his Los Angeles residence, is accused of fatally shooting his wife, Jazmin Nalleli Rodriguez Gallardo, on a street corner in Chihuahua on Feb. 4, 2012. She was a Chihuahua state police officer, according to ICE.
Duran is wanted for the slaying of a 17-year-old boy on Aug. 23, 2010. He allegedly attacked the teen with a knife and machete in front of the boy’s grandmother and then beat up the woman. He was taken into custody on July 11 in Huntington Park.
