    LAS CRUCES, New Mexico (KVIA) -- U.S. Marshal's Service agents, Mexican authorities, and Doña Ana Sheriff’s Office officials have captured Oswaldo Corral, a man who has been wanted on first degree murder, armed robbery, and aggravated burglary charges for almost 16 years.

    Deputies say Corral had been hiding in Mexico using a false name and false documents.

    "His apprehension was made possible through the Sheriff’s Office’s partnership with the United States Marshal’s Service and with the cooperation of Mexican authorities," Sheriff's Office officials said Thursday.

    ABC-7 reported on Corral in 2008 when law enforcement first started looking for him. You can read that reporting here .

    Corral is facing one count of first degree murder, two counts of possession of a firearm by a felon, one count of aggravated battery causing great bodily harm, one count of deadly weapon in a liquor establishment, two counts of tampering with evidence, one count of armed robbery, one count of burglary, one count of conspiracy to commit a third degree felony, one count of false imprisonment, and one count of aggravated assault, according to jail records.

    We also followed up on the story a few months later when law enforcement offered a cash award for information leading to Corral's arrest. Read that article here .
