CHICAGO (WLS) -- A man captured in Chicago accused in a revenge murder has been deported back to Mexico.

Carlos Cortez-Hernandez was detained by ICE officials back in January.

Officials in the Mexican state of Veracruz say he shot and killed a man in 2013 to avenge his father's death.

A judge ordered that he be deported to face charges in Mexico. Cortez-Hernandez was deported Thursday.
