Border Patrol Agents Arrest Man Convicted Of Manslaughter

Tucson Station Border Patrol agents arrested a Mexican man Sunday afternoon shortly after he illegally entered the United States south of Three Points. The agents later learned of his first-degree manslaughter conviction in Oregon.

Agents apprehended Evodio Guzman-Ramirez, a 50-year-old Mexican national, and transported him to the Tucson Station for processing. Agents then conducted a records check and learned Guzman was convicted in 1993 for first-degree manslaughter, resulting in a five-year prison sentence in Benton County, Oregon.

He will remain in federal custody pending prosecution for re-entry as an aggravated felon.
