A Fox Cities fugitive wanted on a homicide charge back in 2007 is back in custody and could be headed back to Outagamie County soon.
43-year-old Manishkumar Patel was arrested by U.S. Border Patrol agents in upstate New York three days ago.
Nine years ago, Patel posted $750,000 bond on a charge of killing his girlfriend’s unborn child.
Prosecutors say Patel was having an affair, and slipped an abortion pill, RU 486, into his girlfriend’s drink, causing her to have a miscarriage.
The Border Patrol says it’s working with the Outagamie County Sheriff’s office.
The news release is below:

On January 20, 2017 at 1:15 AM, agents from the US Border Patrol conducted a traffic stop in Malone, NY on a vehicle suspected to be involved in possible criminal activity.

Border Patrol agents identified a passenger in the vehicle as Manish Patel age 43.  Patel possessed a fraudulent passport that had expired in December of 2016.  Agents took Patel and the driver of the vehicle to the Border Patrol office where they were asked to be fingerprinted.  Patel took the agents aside and advised he was not who his travel documents indicated.  Patel then gave the agents his correct information.  Agents completed a records check and it revealed Patel was wanted by Outagamie County for several felony charges including homicide of an unborn child.

Patel is being held in New York for possible federal immigration charges.  That investigation is ongoing. The Outagamie County Sheriff’s Department is working with the US Border Patrol and US Marshal’s Service.
