(CNN) — Nearly six years after he escaped from prison, one of the U.S. Marshals Service\’s 15 Most Wanted fugitives has been extradited from Mexico and returned to that same prison, according to the federal agency.
Convicted child killer Edward Salas was serving time for murder when he escaped from the Curry County Detention Center in Clovis, New Mexico, in 2008.
At the time of his escape, Salas was serving a life sentence plus 56 years for his role in the murder of a 10-year-old boy, the Marshals Service said in a press release issued Saturday.
Mexican authorities arrested Salas in October 2012 on a U.S. provisional arrest request.
