SEATTLE (AP) - Authorities say an ex-Mexican police officer who was wanted for murder has been captured in southern Washington.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials said in a news release that 64-year-old Humberto Bautista-Sanchez was turned over to Mexican law enforcement authorities Wednesday.

An arrest warrant issued by Mexican authorities shows Bautista-Sanchez is charged with the murder of a man in Mexico City in 1994. An Interpol alert says Bautista-Sanchez beat a man to death for refusing to get into his squad car after Mexican authorities found the man relieving himself on the street.

Bautista-Sanchez was arrested Sept. 15 in Richland and ordered removed by an immigration judge last month.
