TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - One of the men charged with the murder of border patrol agent Brian Terry has been extradited to the U.S. from Mexico.

Ivan Soto-Barraza will be arraigned on Friday, Aug. 1 in federal court in Tucson, according to the Department of Justice.

Terry died in a shootout in 2010 after confronting some border bandits south of Tucson.

Soto-Barraza was caught in Mexico in September 2013. He is charged with first degree murder, second degree murder, conspiracy to interfere with commerce by robbery, attempted interference with commerce by robbery, use and carrying a firearm during a crime of violence and assault on a federal officer.

Two other suspects are missing and two others are behind bars. One was sentenced in February to 30 years in federal prison.

The indictment alleges Soto-Barraza, in addition to the other defendants, assaulted three border patrol agents in addition to Terry.
