MEXICO CITY (AP) - Mexico has extradited seven suspects wanted in the United States on charges of homicide, migrant smuggling and sex with a minor.

Federal prosecutors say the suspects include Jesse Camacho, indicted for first-degree murder in the 2008 shooting death of a man in a Massachusetts bar.

Rodolfo Gallegos was returned to Los Angeles, where he is charged with the 1991 shooting death of a high school student.

In a Saturday statement announcing the extraditions, the federal Attorney General’s Office also said three men and one woman were returned to face charges of smuggling Brazilian and Mexican migrants, while one man faces charges of having sex with a minor in Arizona.

Mexico extradited a record 85 suspects to the United States in 2008.
