An illegal immigrant wanted in a triple homicide in Guatemala was arrested Wednesday in Bensalem Township.

Bensalem police said officers and an FBI task force apprehended Neftaci De Jesus Ortega, 26, without incident on homicide charges at 2:45 p.m. Wednesday.

The FBI Bucks County Violent Gang Task Force had been following up leads to find Ortega, who is accused in Guatemala of having gunned down a father, a mother, and a child in March, police said. A second child was injured but survived by pretending to be dead, authorities said.

Authorities said Ortega was in the United States illegally and would be deported to Guatemala. - AP
