Accused Murderer Brought Back To East Texas

An accused murder on the run since 1999 is back in East Texas and in the Smith County Jail.

Hersain Valdovinos Gomez was handed over to Smith County authorities early Saturday morning, according to the county's district attorney, Matt Bingham.

In July of 1999, Gomez and five others were charged with the stabbing and beating death of 18-year-old Adam Carrier. Four of the teens involved were tried and given life sentences. Gomez and another woman fled to Mexico. \

Gomez was found last June in a Mexican jail. He faces life in prison.
