California Prosecutors Charge Mexican Immigrant With Murder in Pier Death

Monday, 06 Jul 2015 08:35 PM

Prosecutors have charged a Mexican immigrant with murder in the waterfront shooting death of a woman.

Authorities said Monday that 45-year-old Francisco Sanchez is expected to be arraigned Tuesday in the death of 32-year-old Kathryn Steinle.

Sanchez, a repeat drug offender, was released from jail on April 15 in San Francisco.

Federal immigration authorities had filed a so-called detainer with San Francisco authorities, asking to be informed if they intended to release Sanchez.

However, the city's sanctuary law prevents city workers from cooperating with federal authorities on immigration cases.
