NOGALES, Ariz. -

A Mexican national wanted in Mexico for murder and torture charges was turned over to authorities at the Dennis DeConcini port of entry in Nogales Friday.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement turned over 38-year-old Jesus Ortiz-Tun to the Mexican federal police.

According to ICE, Phoenix police had an encounter with Ortiz-Tun on May 22 and ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations officers subsequently took him into custody.

During immigration screening, ERO says they discovered Ortiz-Tun had an outstanding Mexican arrest warrant for charges of torture, barbarous act and injury causing death, manslaughter and murder.

Ortiz-Tun allegedly entered the U.S. illegally in 2010.

Mexican authorities were alerted that he was in U.S. custody and on June 17, an immigration judge granted Ortiz-Tun voluntary departure under safeguards.

Since Oct. 1, 2009, ERO has removed more than 566 foreign fugitives from the United States who were wanted in their native countries for serious crimes, including kidnapping, rape and murder.
