SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) -- A man who escaped into Mexico after allegedly killing three teen-agers was arrested at the border while trying to re-enter the United States, authorities said.
Alfred "Wizard" Flores, 21, was found Thursday among a group of illegal aliens who had entered the United States near the border city of Tecate.
He was jailed without bail Friday in San Bernardino, said sheriff's spokesman Chip Patterson.
Flores is suspected of the March murders of Ricardo Torres, 15; Jason Van Kleef, 18; and Alexander Ayala, 17, in Rialto, as well as a murder in Los Angeles County last November, Patterson said.
Sheriff's deputies believe the three teens were killed because they refused to join Flores' gang.
