Mexican national accused of a 1990's murder in Mexico, who had been living in Bloomington, appeared in Peoria federal court where he was ordered detained pending his extradition hearing. Bloomington Police say Jose Aurelio Haro Garcia is accused of shooting another man in 1996 in Mexico. The U S Marshall's service developed information that Haro Garcia was living in the 300 block of South Prairie Street in Bloomington and he was arrested without incident in May. A federal judge Friday set an extradition hearing on August 19th.
