ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - A suspected felon who fled to Mexico nearly 15 years ago has been arrested and returned to New Mexico to face charges.
U.S. Marshals said Rexford King II was found living with his common-law wife, Yvonne Jacquez, and their two children in March in San Carlos, Mexico. They too had changed their names.
King and Jacquez were extradited Wednesday to New Mexico and are being held at the Metropolitan Detention Center.
Albuquerque police say King was arrested in February 1998 on suspicions of 37 counts of raping a minor and for being a felon in possession of a firearm. He posted bond and fled the country.
Jacquez allegedly told investigators King was killed in a fishing boat accident. She is accused of aiding and harboring a felon.
