SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - New Mexico Attorney General Gary King says a man accused of killing a Clovis boy will be brought back to the state from Mexico to stand trial.

King announced Friday that the Mexican government has granted the extradition of 33-year-old Noe Torres.

Authorities say Torres was part of a gang that fired several bullets into a Clovis home in September 2005, resulting in the death of 10-year-old Carlos Perez.

Torres was captured in Mexico on Jan. 25.

He has 15 days to appeal the extradition.

King says he faces three charges including first-degree murder, attempted murder and shooting at an occupied building.
