An arrest has been made in a 2012 murder case that left a 2-year-old dead. Harrison County Sheriff's Office and Harrison County District Attorney's Office were notified yesterday by the U S Marshall's Office that an arrest of the alleged murder suspect 28-year-old Jose Luis Casiano-Aburto, had been made in Mexico, according to our news partners at KYTX CBS 19.

Casiano-Aburto was listed as the sole suspect in February 15, 2012 murder involving the death of 2 year old Yeli Madalyn Jimenez. Her death was attributed to blunt force injuries allegedly received after Casiano-Aburto struck the child.

A warrant for his arrest was sworn after deputies had attempted to contact Casiano-Aburto for an interview the day after the child's death. They discovered he had fled to his native Mexico. After the warrant had been delivered to the U S Marshall's Office, negotiations for his arrest were made with the U S Border Patrol, Homeland Security, and Mexican Government Authorities.
