August 29, 2019

DODGE CITY, Kan. (AP) — A suspect in a 2012 murder in Ford County has been returned to Kansas after being arrested and extradited from Mexico.

Ford County Attorney Kevin Salzman said 23-year-old Miguel Solis is a suspect in the death of Miguel Tol Juarez, who died in August 2012.

The Dodge City Daily Globe reports Solis is charged with first-degree murder, two counts of aggravated battery, one count of attempted aggravated robbery and one count of criminal possession of a firearm.

He is being held on $4 million bond.

Investigators say Solis was one of three Dodge City males who shot Tol Juarez at his home during an attempted robbery. The other two suspects were arrested shortly after the death but Solis fled to Mexico.

Solis’ next hearing is scheduled for Sept. 5.
