ATLANTA -- U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) removed a Honduran man living in North Carolina who was wanted for murdering two men. 

ICE says deportation officers removed Francisco Escobar-Orellana from his home near Hope Mills on February 21. 

According to a release, Escobar is accused of killing two men with a machete at a liquor store in his home country in 1993. A warrant for his arrest was issued in May 2005. 

Special agents arrested Escobar during a targeted enforcement operation. ICE says a federal judge then ordered Escobar's removal from the country on March 23.
