Man charged in 2003 murder brought to Wyoming for trial

August 5, 2018

LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Authorities say a man charged in a 2003 murder has been brought back to Wyoming for trial.

Fidel Serrano was booked into the Albany County Detention Center on Friday. Albany County Attorney Peggy Trent tells the Laramie Boomerang that she began the process to extradite Serrano in 2016.

Serrano is charged with first-degree murder and flight to avoid prosecution. Authorities say he shot a co-worker at a furniture factory in Laramie. According to court documents, witnesses saw the two men fighting the night before.

It’s not clear if Serrano has an attorney. He is being held without bond.

Authorities suspected Serrano fled to Colorado, then to Mexico. Trent says federal authorities, including the U.S. Marshals and the FBI helped return Serrano to Wyoming for a trial in the man’s death.
