Costa Almería News - - News -

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.
