MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- After 16 years on the run in Mexico, a suspected murderer was extradited back to Milwaukee to face justice.

On Monday, the FBI and MPD announced Octaviano Juarez-Corro will appear in court in the coming days.

On Memorial Day 2006, Juarez-Corro shot and killed two people execution-style at a South Shore picnic. 

Three others were wounded, including his pregnant wife. He ran away to Mexico.

Last September, he was added to the FBI's Top 10 Most Wanted. Then he was captured in February.

"A closing of the chapter to bring this individual to justice and bring him back to the community he impacted," said Special Agent in Charge Michael Hensle, FBI Milwaukee. "We're not going to stop looking for someone when they have that level of impact on the community."

In the past five years, the state of Wisconsin has nominated three people for the FBI's Top 10 Most Wanted list. 

All three have been captured.
