An illegal immigrant with a lengthy criminal record has been charged with shooting a Wisconsin sheriff's deputy in the face and killing him.

Ezeiquiel Lopez was charged in the death of Kenosha County Sheriff's Deputy Frank Fabiano, according to WTMJ-TV in Milwaukee. A criminal complaint says Lopez admits to drinking tequila on the night of the murder and doing cocaine. But he told investigators that he doesn't remember shooting anyone.

Lopez's criminal record includes:

  • In 2001, he was arrested in Utah for lewd and lascivious conduct.

  • In 2003, he was arrested in Texas on a gun charge.

  • In 2003, Lopez was picked-up in Missouri for OWI.

  • In 2004, Kenosha Police arrested him on charges of domestic battery, disorderly conduct, bail jumping.
  • Despite his contact with law enforcement authorities, he was never deported.

    "We can find no record of having had contact with this individual before or having had him referred to us by another law enforcement agency," Tim Counts of Immigration and Customs Enforcement told WTMJ.
