MARSHALL, Tx. (KTBS) -

An East Texas man accused of murdering a 2 year-old last year, has been captured in Mexico.

On Friday, December 9, Harrison County Sheriff's Office and Harrison County District Attorney's Office were notified by the U.S. Marshal's Office that an arrest of the alleged murder suspect Jose Luis Casiano-Aburto had been made in Mexico. Casiano-Aburto is accused of killing 2 year-old Yeli Madalyn Jimenez back in February 2012. Her death was attributed to blunt force injuries allegedly received after Casiano-Aburto struck the child.

Harrison County authorities issued a warrant for Casiano-Aburto's arrest after deputies attempted to contact him for an interview the day after the child died. Authorities then found out that the suspect had fled to his native country Mexico.

After the warrant was delivered to the U. S. Marshal's Office, negotionations for his arrest were made with the U. S. Border Patrol, Homeland Security and Mexican Government Authorities.

Casiano-Aburto will be handed over to U. S. Marshal's Office Deputies and returned to Harrison County within a few days where he will be held pending trial. His original bond was set at $1,000,000.00 but officials say that may change since he fled to Mexico.
