SAN JOSE, Calif. -- (KTLA) -- A San Jose man will appear in court next week to answer to charges that he stabbed and shot his ex-girlfriend to death and then texted a photo of the corpse to her boyfriend, telling him, “It’s too late,” prosecutors say.

After fleeing to Mexico nearly three years ago, murder suspect Julio Pliego, 46, was returned to U.S. authorities on Tuesday, following nine months of extradition proceedings, according to the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s office.

On Wednesday, Pliego was arraigned on a felony count of murder and an allegation of torture, for the death of Veronica Lozano, a 35-year-old hairstylist and mother of four. Pliego is scheduled to enter his plea on April 12.
