An illegal immigrant who had a detainer placed on him by Immigration and Customs Enforcement but was released from jails in Washington state has been charged with murdering a high schooler — and ICE is blaming sanctuary laws for the fact one of the suspected killers was in the country at all.

Carlos Orlando Iraheta-Vega, 20, is one of two men who stands accused of the murder of 16-year-old Juan Carlos Con Guzman, according to the Seattle Times.

Authorities say Con Guzman, a student at Mount Rainier High School in Des Moines, Washington, was lured from his home Sept. for a fight by Iraheta-Vega and 28-year-old Rudy Osvaldo Garcia-Hernandez. The two then drove him by the Green River in Auburn “with a plan to torture and kill him,” according to court documents.
