THREE OAKS, Mich. (WOOD) — A Utah woman accused of planning an overseas attack that killed her husband, a former soldier from West Michigan, has been deported to El Salvador to face charges.

Nuri Aquino-Torres, 28, was extradited to El Savador Wednesday by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

She is accused of planning the 2013 murder of her then estranged husband Master Sergeant Michael Brown, a former soldier from Three Oaks in Berrien County.

Brown was in El Salvador with his estranged wife last year when they were ambushed by gunman. He was killed in the attack and his wife was injured.

Investigators say Aquino-Torres planned the attack. She is facing charges in Brown’s death.

Fugitive operations officers located and arrested Aquino-Torres at her home near Salt Lake City, Utah, in March. An immigration judge ordered her removed from the U.S. in July.
