The man accused of assaulting and murdering a 92-year-old woman is believed to be in the country illegally.

Reeaz Khan, a 21-year-old Guyanese national, is believed to be behind the brutal slaying of Maria Fuertes in Richmond Hill.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials said the NYPD released Khan in November after he attacked his father with a broken coffee cup, ignoring a federal request to turn him over for deportation.

The officials blamed New York’s sanctuary city policies for Fuertes’ rape and murder. Under the policy, the city only hands over undocumented people convicted of a violent crime.
