MURDER SUSPECT NABBED
A 41-year-old Moroccan man has been charged with the death of a man who was murdered more than three years ago in the province.
The individual, identified only by his initials Y.S., went on the run in June 2014 after allegedly shooting a 24-year-old Moroccan man in the head while he slept at his home in La Mojonera. It appears the victim had been mistaken for a drug dealer.
Although three people were arrested at the time, including a man who had accompanied the murderer at the time of the attack, the assailant fled the country. However, the Spanish authorities issued an international arrest warrant, and thanks to the Moroccan police were able to track him down and arrest him in Almerimar-El Ejido after returning to Spain under a false identity.
