After 25 Years Suspected Killer Back in Plainview

He was on the run for 25 years and now a suspected killer is behind bars.

Margarito Hernandez was extradicted back to Plainview around noon Thursday. The 83-year-old turned himself into El Paso authorities last Friday.

Plainview police have been looking for Hernandez since December 21, 1978. That's when he allegedly shot Georgia Ruiz twice in the chest at her Plainview home. Hernandez will be arraigned Friday morning.
