Juan Garcia's new mugshot.
Juan Garcia -- who's accused of killing his girlfriend's 2-year-old son in February -- is back in Maricopa County, winning a trip to the 4th Avenue Jail for a fresh mugshot.

Garcia, 18, turned himself in to immigration-enforcement authorities near the border crossing in Lukeville on Friday, and was booked into jail by the sheriff's office yesterday.

Garcia was a wanted man by Phoenix police since going on the run after allegedly beating 2-year-old Jorge Zamora-Rogel to death on February 24.

Garcia's facing charges of first-degree murder, child abuse, aggravated assault, and regular assault.

Wendy Rogel-Pagasa, Garcia's girlfriend and the mother of Jorge, was previously jailed for allegedly waiting for more than three hours after the boy went unconscious to call 9-1-1.

In case you missed the details of this story, you can catch up by reading below:

According to court documents previously obtained by New Times, Rogel-Pagasa and her son were at home that night, February 24, when Garcia showed up with some food.

After Garcia's girlfriend informed him that her son wouldn't be eating any of the food he brought over, Garcia went to the boy's bedroom and attempted to pull him out of the room by his ear.

When the boy began to cry, police say Garcia picked the boy up by the throat and began slamming his head into the bedroom wall. Garcia then began slamming the boy's head against the ground, beating the kid unconscious before Rogel-Pagasa intervened, according to court documents.

When Rogel-Pagasa did try to get involved, police say he whipped her with an electrical cord and choked her.

Garcia attempted to wake the boy up -- by hitting him more, lifting him up by his ankle, bending his fingers back, and slapping him face -- but the boy remained unconscious, according to police, and Garcia just left.

Rogel-Pagasa also tried to wake the boy up, telling police she cleaned the "bloody froth" coming out of his mouth several times.

Rogel-Pagasa told police her son's arms were spasming uncontrollably, and his erratic breathing was making a "rattling sound" -- which she recognized from "one of her dogs which died shortly after making this noise."

Ironically, it's quite pathetic to know that the kid-killer is also an ardent Roman Catholic. Same as you.

And he committed infanticide.
