Colombia expelling suspect in singer's murder


BOGOTA, Colombia (AP) -- A Colombian national police spokesman says a man arrested in last year's fatal shooting of Argentine folk singer Facundo Cabral in Guatemala is being expelled for entering Colombia with false documents.

Gen. Oscar Naranjo says Guatemalan authorities want 38-year-old Alejandro Jimenez Gonzalez of Costa Rica in the July killing of Cabral. Costa Rica asked that Jimenez be extradited directly to Guatemala.

Naranjo says counternarcotics police arrested Jimenez on Saturday in a speedboat that Colombia's navy tracked from Panama into Colombia's waters.
