SAN ANTONIO – A man wanted for murder is on his way back to Mexico and this isn't the first time he's been deported for committing crimes.

Osbaldo Carrilo-Peralta, 39, was escorted to the Brownsville Port of Entry and turned over to Mexican officials.

He was first arrested in 1998 in Dallas and was convicted for firing a deadly weapon and sentenced to 10 years.

In 2002, he was deported to Mexico.

He illegally re-entered the U.S. and was arrested in 2009 for possessing a controlled substance.

He was deported again to Mexico in May 2010 after serving his prison sentence.

Then, he illegally re-entered the U.S. and was taken into custody by the Mercer County Sheriff's Office and was convicted in federal court.

Anyone who re-enters the U.S. after having been deported commits a felony is punishable by up to 20 years in prison, if convicted.
