A 42-year-old Sonoran man was sentenced to 60 months in prison on Oct. 11 for illegal entry into the United States, U.S. Customs and Border Protection announced Friday.

Abel Carrillo Urango, of San Luis Rio Colorado, Sonora, was apprehended by Ajo Station Border Patrol agents on March 2, the Border Patrol said in a press release.

During processing, agents learned that Carrillo was convicted in 1992 of second-degree murder in Colorado and was sentenced to 20 years in prison. After serving that sentence, Carrillo was removed from the United States, the Border Patrol said.

After serving his current sentence for re-entry of a felon, Carrillo will be formally removed from the United States. He also is banned for life from all legalization processes without a waiver from the U.S. Attorney General.
