KINGSTON, Jamaica – U.S. authorities have repatriated a former police officer from Jamaica charged with murder.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement says 34-year-old Carlington David Richards fled Jamaica days before his court appearance last year. The agency said in a statement Friday that Richards entered the U.S. on a visitor visa that has since expired.

Richards was arrested in Seattle in March during a nationwide operation that netted more than 3,100 criminal suspects.
