A man accused in a 2005 killing in Holland Township has been returned to Ottawa County after police say he headed to Mexico.

The sheriff's office says Eliseo Ruiz fatally stabbed William James Oliverio Jr. on April 2, 2005.

After legal proceedings in Mexico and the U.S., the sheriff's office says Ruiz was extradited to Houston and then brought back to southwestern Michigan.

Ruiz was taken into custody by the sheriff's office late Friday afternoon. He is being held without bond in the Ottawa County Jail.

Ruiz's arraignment is scheduled for Monday in Holland District Court.
