Previously-Deported Ecuadorian Who Strangled Newborn to Death Caught In New York

Previously-Deported Ecuadorian Who Strangled Newborn to Death Caught In New York

A previously-deported illegal alien from Ecuador who strangled her own newborn to death was arrested in New York last week, according to authorities.

On Monday, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) announced the apprehension of 33-year-old Maria Oliva Guaman upon her release from the New York State Department of Corrections after serving prison time for felony manslaughter of a newborn.

Guaman first entered the United States at a unknown location at an unknown time before being removed from the country on January 14, 2009.

She reentered the U.S. undetected before being arrested by police in Spring Valley, NY, on December 10, 2013, for murdering her own baby.

“On Sept. 15, 2014, the Rockland County, New York Supreme Court convicted her of manslaughter, a felony, in violation of section 125.20 of the New York State Penal Law and sentenced her to 12 years imprisonment,” ICE explained in a press release.

On April 8, 2014, Guaman was separately convicted of illegal reentry in a United States District Court and sentenced to time served.

“The absolute heinous nature of the crime cannot be overstated as this woman strangled her newborn baby to death and tossed him in a dumpster,” said ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) New York City Field Office Director Kenneth Genalo. “ERO NYC will seek to effect her removal to Ecuador.”

Guaman is being held without bond pending removal proceedings.

Authorities continue to catch dangerous foreign criminals illegally present in the U.S.

Earlier this month, a Guatemalan citizen who entered the U.S. as an ‘unaccompanied minor’ and was later ordered deported was arrested in Florida for sex crimes in Oregon.

Last month, a known MS-13 gang member with three prior deportations who is wanted for murder in his home country of El Salvador was arrested by ICE agents in Foxboro, MA.

Weeks ago, another MS-13 gangbanger from El Salvador with multiple convictions for sex crimes in the U.S. was arrested in Riverdale, Maryland.
