Man deported seven times charged with aggravated murder in Hamilton

Apr. 3—Hamilton police have charged a man — highlighted by the sheriff last week for entering the country illegally multiple times — with aggravated murder.

Police Chief Craig Bucheit said Wednesday officers believe that two days before Fermin Garcia-Gutierrez, 46, was arrested on March 16 on other charges, he committed the homicide.

On Monday this week, officers received a call about a body in the 1100 block of South 13th Street. The chief said investigators have been working this case since then, and, “It just so happens we ran into him and had an encounter with him. Unbeknownst to us, he had committed this murder.”
