Mexico To Try Man In Ore. Deputy's Death
August 07, 2012
An injured suspect who limped away from his Oregon home and two murder charges stemming from a car crash that killed his cousin and a Marion County (Ore.) Sheriff's deputy probably never will face justice in Oregon, the prosecutor said Monday.
Investigators said they believe Alfredo De Jesus-Ascencio fled to Mexico as prosecutors sought an indictment five years ago, and the U.S. extradition treaty with Mexico doesn't apply in this case. Instead, prosecutors said, Mexican authorities have agreed to try De Jesus-Ascencio under Mexican law and issued a warrant for his arrest last year.
Police believe De Jesus-Ascencio was behind the wheel of the vehicle that struck Deputy Kelly James Fredinburg's cruiser on June 16, 2007. The deputy's car flipped over and caught fire. He died at the scene.
