Previously Deported Illegal Alien to Stand Trial for Murder
May 16, 2016
(Breitbart) – An illegal alien who had been previously deported multiple times and then was let out of jail because of a government processing error is now set to stand trial for murder. The Mexican national allegedly killed five people after immigration officials sent a detainer to the wrong jail.
A preliminary hearing for Pablo Antonio Serrano-Vitorino was held this week in Missouri. Montgomery County Associate Circuit Judge Kelly Broniec set an arraignment date for June 1, the Associated Press reported.
Breitbart News’ Katie McHugh reported in March that Serrano-Vitorino allegedly killed four people in Kansas City, Kansas. The next day, he traveled to Missouri where he allegedly killed a fifth person.
In September 2015, Serrano-Vitorino was being held by the Overland Park, Kansas, Municipal Court. McHugh reported that the man’s fingerprints triggered an immigration detainer from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Instead of sending the ICE detainer to the municipal court, officials delivered the notice to the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office. The illegal alien who had been previously deported multiple times for his criminal behavior was released and six months later, 5 Americans would be dead.
