MARSHALL, Tx. -

Harrison County investigators have met with the U.S. Marshal’s Office in Dallas and returned Jose Casiano-Aburto from Mexico. Casiano-Aburto fled to Mexico after he was named a suspect in the death of Yeli Madalyn Jimenez, 2. 

The suspect is an illegal alien and went to central Mexico in February of 2012 after the death of Jimenez. Efforts to return him for investigation and trial began with the U.S. Department of State, U.S. Marshal’s Office, U.S. Homeland Security, and the Mexican government. 

He was arrested in Mexico and held for extradition back to the United States and Harrison County. An agreement was made not to include the death penalty in the trial for the child’s death and this cleared the way for his return.
