A Honduran man accused of decapitating his mother in North Carolina
was in the United States illegally, federal officials said Tuesday.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesman Bryan
Cox told FOX 46 Charlotte that the agency had issued a detainer for the
suspect, identified as 18-year-old Oliver Funes.
The suspect's full name was not immediately clear.
Cox said Federal records list his name as Oliver Funes Machado. However,
local court records listed the suspect's name as Oliver Funes Machada,
public defender C. Boyd Sturges III said.
