    A suspect in a Vallejo homicide was extradited back to the U.S. and booked into the Solano County jail Friday, police said.

    William Cordoba, 32, also known as William Johnson, was arrested on March 21, 2014, in Lima, Peru. Police said Cordoba was a Vallejo resident.

    Cordoba was being sought for allegedly killing 27-year-old Jimme Richardson on Feb. 4, 2013, at about 4:20 a.m. near Borges Lane and Evelyn Circle.
