Previously Deported Criminal Alien Charged with Murder

A previously deported illegal immigrant has been arrested for the murder of an unidentified Hispanic man who was found on a street.

Dionicio Polanco Lopez, 41, is accused of shooting dead a 21-year-old man once in the head and then leaving him in the middle of a street in Rowlett, Texas, according to DFW News.

Soon after the Dallas County Medical Examiner announced that the man’s death was a homicide, Dallas County Police and Texas Rangers arrested Lopez for the man’s death, with the illegal immigrant now facing murder charges.

Lopez was deported in 2012 after being convicted on a felony charge. He is also facing federal charges for re-entering the U.S.
