A war criminal suspected of murdering an enemy soldier and torturing another has been extradited to Bosnia-Herzegovina to be tried.

Federal authorities say Sulejman Mujagic, 50, of Utica, allegedly shot an unarmed enemy soldier and beat another in March 1995 during the Bosnian War, while serving as a regional army commander in the Army of the Autonomous Province of Western Bosnia.

It is alleged that Mujagic shot one prisoner after asking him a question, then was involved in the beating of a second prisoner several times.

Mujagic was arrested in November on the charges, and openly denied the allegations during a detention hearing in December of 2012.

He originally came to Utica in 1997 and obtained lawful permanent status in 2001, but does not retain U.S. citizenship.

Mujagic’s arrest and extradition was a result of a close partnership between the U.S. and Bosnian authorities.
