Houston, Texas - On Thursday, the U.S. Marshals Service surrendered Benito Torres Gómez, a Mexican national wanted for murder to Mexican Federal Police in Houston. Gómez fled to the U.S. to avoid prosecution in Mexico. He was wanted in connection for the 2010 homicide of Verónica Morales Juárez in the city of Francisco García Salinas, Rio Grande municipality, Zacatecas. Juárez was fatally shot by Gómez during a custody battle over their daughter, according to the Federal Attorney General's Office (PGR).
Gómez was transported to the state of Zacatecas, where he will face homicide charges. Last April, the PGR has requested the extradition of Gómez.
He was arrested on June 2, in Houston, Texas by the U.S. Marshals Service.
