— A suspect in the 2007 murder of a mother of six in Sunnyside was extradited back to the U.S. from Mexico and booked into the Yakima County jail Thursday night.

Eric Flores fled to Mexico after allegedly shooting Veronica Ayala, according to the Yakima County Prosecutor’s Office. State and federal agencies have been working on his extradition since he was arrested in Mexico in October of 2012.

Shortly after Ayala’s death prosecutors charged Flores with second-degree murder.
