ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Authorities say a 23-year-old man sought in an Albuquerque road-rage killing, that occurred nearly six years ago is back in the United States after being extradited from Mexico.

The U.S. Marshals Service says Raul Pena-Roque was extradited Wednesday to face charges of second degree murder, kidnapping, aggravated assault, and bribery intimidation of a witness.

Pena-Roque was sought in the fatal shooting of Robert Chavez during a minor traffic accident in a gas station parking lot in September 2008.

The Marshals Service says a fugitive task force located Pena in Ciudad Juarez, where Mexican authorities arrested him in 2013.
