A man was arrested this week and faces deportation after Memphis police say he beat a 4-month-old to death upon learning the child wasn't his.
The man, identified by local authorities as Jose Agurcia-Avila, was charged with first-degree murder in perpetration of aggravated child abuse and first-degree murder in perpetration of aggravated child neglect.
However, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement later said that name was an alias -- the man's real name is Carlos Zuniga-Aviles, and his identity was confirmed through biometrics. They said he is a Honduran national in the country illegally, and he has been removed from the country five times in the past.
