FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) -- Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials say a man from El Salvador accused of a slaying in that country has been deported from Virginia.

Thirty-one-year-old Jose Yuber Antonio Del Cid-Cruz, who lived in Falls church while he was in the U.S. illegally, was deported to El Salvador on Tuesday. He is charged in a 2009 slaying there.
