New details about the man accused of abducting his daughter and killing her mother in Connecticut yesterday.
Immigration officials say 39-year-old Oscar Hernandez of El Salvador was in the country illegally and was issued a Final Order of Removal from the United States back in 2013.
Police say he took his daughter, 6-year-old Aylin Sofia Hernandez, after he fatally stabbed her mother early yesterday morning in the city of Bridgeport.
Authorities say Hernandez was spotted driving through the Bronx at one point, leading to a citywide Amber Alert.
Pennsylvania State Police eventually caught up with them after a high-speed chase that ended in Hernandez crashing his car.
Both Hernandez and his daughter suffered minor injuries.
Hernandez also allegedly stabbed a second person who’s expected to survive.
ICE has placed an immigration detainer to bring him under its custody.
