Update: Tucumcari Murder Suspect

Tucumcari police are now working to extradite the man they say committed a 1999 murder, back to New Mexico.

A Washington state court confirmed Friday that the suspect, Teodoro Barraza is the same man Washington police pulled over for D.U.I. in October.

The identity hearing had to confirm Barraza's identity before he could be extradited to stand trial for killing George Bermundez.

Now a Governor's warrant must be signed to transport him back to Tucumcari.
