Salvadoran On Most Wanted List Appears In Jefferson County Court

GOLDEN, Colo. (AP) – A man from El Salvador who was on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted list has made his first appearance in a Colorado courtroom on charges of killing a 69-year-old man in 2011.

Edwin Ernesto Rivera Gracias appeared in Jefferson County District Court Thursday on charges including murder.

Rivera Gracias is accused in the stabbing death of Richard Limon, whose body was found on Lookout Mountain west of Golden.

Rivera Gracias was arrested less than two weeks after the FBI placed him on its Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list.

He returned to Colorado from El Salvador on Wednesday accompanied by FBI agents, and a photo released by the agency shows him being led from a plane in handcuffs.

The FBI says his return was voluntary.
