Man recently released from Mexican jail
DONNA - A Mexican citizen will go before a judge to face murder charges this morning, six years after the crime was committed. Manuel Garcia Martinez was handed over to U.S. authorities at the Hidalgo International Bridge Monday morning. He's wanted in for the August 2002 murder of Robert Torres in Donna.
Garcia was serving time in a Mexican federal prison for burglary. In 2004, federal police in Mexico agreed to turn him over to Donna authorities only after his burglary sentence was served.
