The man charged with fatally stabbing his ex-girlfriend in the Shakopee apartment they once shared before slashing his own throat has a criminal history that led to his deportation to Mexico as an illegal immigrant several years ago, federal officials said Tuesday.
Enedelia Perez Garcia, 27, died in the apartment on Aug. 12 from “multiple stab wounds all over her body,” according to a second-degree murder charge filed Monday against Fraider Diaz-Carbajal, 35.
Garcia was killed late that afternoon during an argument at the residence in the 1200 block of Taylor Street, roughly 5 miles west of the Shakopee home where she moved to about a month ago, police said.
Federal immigration authorities were notified of Diaz-Carbajal’s jailing because “his immigration status is in question,” Police Capt. Craig Robson said Tuesday.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) spokesman Shawn Neudauer said Diaz-Carbajal has three drunken-driving convictions on his record and another conviction for domestic assault against Garcia. A federal immigration judge in December 2012 ordered him deported to Mexico, and ICE officers carried out that order two days later, Neudauer said.
