After escaping from the Curry County Jail, a man convicted of killing a child in New Mexico has been extradited back to the state.

The US Marshals Service announced Saturday, Edward Salas has been taken back to Curry County to serve his sentence for his role in the murder of a 10 year old Clovis boy.

Salas escaped from the Curry County Detention Center in 2008 with seven other inmates, before fleeing to Mexico.

In 2012, he was arrested by Mexican authorities. Salas is serving a life sentence for his role in the 2005 killing of Carlos Perez who was shot in the head while sleeping.
