Illegal Immigrant With Criminal Past Reentered Country Illegally and Murdered His Ex in Minnesota

A 35-year-old illegal immigrant who reentered the country illegally pleaded guilty last week to stabbing his ex-girlfriend to death in August in his Shakopee apartment.

According to a statement from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Fraider Diaz-Carbajal was deported in 2012 for “suspected immigration violations.” He had a history of criminal activity, including three DUIs and a domestic assault conviction.

“Since then he illegally reentered the United States, which is a felony. He remains in local custody pending adjudication of his criminal charges,” ICE said in August after Diaz-Carbajal’s arrest.

The Star Tribune reports that he entered his plea to second-degree murder last week, and prosecutors will seek a maximum sentence of 40 years for the murder of Enedelia Perez Garcia.

Court records reveal that Garcia was found with “multiple stab wounds all over her body” after she visited Diaz-Carbajal’s apartment to pick up some of her belongings. The two had previously lived together, but Garcia moved out “due to the domestic abuse,” the records state.

A witness to the murder, a young woman who lived in a neighboring apartment, said she heard Garcia yell “drop the knife,” and then saw through a bedroom window Diaz-Carbajal pinning Garcia to a bed and stabbing her. Diaz-Carbajal was then seen slashing his own threat and stabbing himself repeatedly in the abdomen, making the case an apparent botched murder-suicide.

He was found at the scene lying on top of Garcia’s dead body, and was later treated for his self-inflicted wounds before being booked into jail.

According to court records, Diaz-Carbajal used an alias of Jose Macias Carrasco and provided a false birth date to reenter the country illegally. He will stay in Scott County Jail until his March 15 sentencing, CBS reports.

A fundraiser was later started for Garcia and her mother, who wanted to transport her daughter’s body to be buried in Mexico. The fundraiser notes that Garcia leaves behind a seven-year-old daughter.

“Enedeliz was a ball of laugh[s] who cheered up everyone around her. She was a very vibrant part of her circle and the community,” the fundraiser states. “She will be deeply missed.”
