Tercero is suspected of killing Anderson, a fellow 22-year-old nursing student at BU, and fleeing to Nicaragua on an global flight.
Tercero was arrested on Tuesday by Nicaragua National Police in connection to Anderson's death, according to ABC News. The District Attorney Office said they will call on the United States State Department to reach an agreement with the Nicaraguan Government so that Tercero can be extradited back to the United States.
Given the violent nature of the crime, the disturbing facts surrounding the suspects flight from the jurisdiction, and our extradition treaty with Nicaragua, I respectfully ask that you make this case a top priority and take all appropriate steps to aggressively pursue the prompt extradition of Mr. Tercero, Schumer wrote. In New York, he faces 15 years to life behind bars.
Tercero reportedly holds dual citizenship for Nicaragua and the United States, which makes it more hard to extradite the 22-year-old back to the country even though the United States has an extradition treaty with Nicaragua, reported ABC News, citing Binghampton Police Chief Joseph Zikuski.
Anderson's roommate said she's relieved that Tercero has been charged, but no matter what happens, it's not going to bring Anderson back.
Cornwell also released new details on the case.
The next morning Anderson found her auto tires had been slashed. Police responded to the scene at 12:53 p.m. Anderson, a senior majoring in nursing from Westbury, New York, did not reside in the house.
Investigators said she died of strangulation.
"When police arrived, they learned that Haley's roommates went to that location to look for Haley".
Nicaragua National Police Commissioner Francisco Diaz said on Tuesday that Tercero was being handed over to judicial authorities, reported the news station. Also a nursing student at Binghamton, Tercero, a US citizen, fled to Nicaragua after telling his sister he "did something bad" and was "a disgrace to the family".
Anderson told Tercero she meant to file a report with police, he he told her he didn't think it was a good idea and Tercero never filed a report about his own tires, police say.
"Orlando is presently now being detained in Nicaragua, subject to further investigation", Bachner said.
