U.S. Border Patrol agents have arrested a man wanted in connection to a 1980 homicide in Nebraska as he was trying to cross from Mexico along the New Mexico border.
The Border Patrol announced Monday that agents arrested 51-year-old Mexican citizen Oscar Rosario Hernandez last week in a remote area of southwestern New Mexico.
A check revealed Hernandez had an outstanding warrant in connection with the homicide in Omaha.
Hernandez was taken to the Luna County jail, where he awaits extradition to Nebraska to face the charges.
Authorities say he will also be charged with illegal entry into the country.
