Ubaldo Solis Sanchez, 51, served time in San Luis Obispo County Jail before he was transferred on Friday to Monterey County Jail on charges he murdered Manuel Pesgueira Sandoval in 1982.
Sanchez is suspected of shooting Sandoval at a stock farm near Parkfield. Before deputies could arrest Sanchez, he fled to Mexico.
The Monterey County District Attorney’s office told the Californian it expected to charge Sanchez with murder this morning.
