DENVER U.S. immigrations officials have deported a man to face aggravated theft and homicide charges in Chihuahua, Mexico.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement said Monday that 25-year-old Ricardo Padilla-Chavez was deported late Friday.

An arrest warrant alleges Padilla-Chavez and an accomplice broke into the home of Sergio Torres-Morales on Feb. 3, 2008, and shot and killed him before stealing property from the home.

Longmont police and ICE arrested him May 5 after receiving a tip from Mexican prosecutors that he may have been living with his parents in the Longmont area.

ICE says he illegally re-entered the U.S. after being deported Jan. 30, 2007, following a burglary conviction and prison sentence in Jefferson County in 2001.
