After spending 11 years on the lam, a fugitive wanted for capital murder in Alabama is back in custody.

Franklin County Sheriff Shannon Oliver indicated that the FBI and U.S. Marshals helped track down Vincente Soto in Mexico.

Soto has been charged with capital murder stemming from a Franklin County case in 2005, The Times Daily reported.

Authorities indicated that a lot of work and negotiations with the government of Mexico went into getting Soto extradited to the U.S.

“He needed to answer to his charges here,” Franklin County Sheriff, Shannon Oliver, said. “It was a relief to know that we were able to get him.”

Oliver said Soto is charged with the murder of 31-year-old Dionicio Bahena at a trailer park in 2005. Investigators said Soto shot the victim while he was sitting in a vehicle.

“There was some altercation between the two men. When the one came back that’s when he was killed,” Oliver added.

Soto remains in custody without bond at the Franklin County Jail.
