Bridgeport - US police are working to bring back to Connecticut a man suspected of fleeing the state with his daughter after killing the girl's mother.

A spokesperson for the Bridgeport department said on Saturday that police were also investigating the details surrounding Oscar Hernandez's immigration status. Federal immigration officials say he had been deported on November 27 2013.

A citizen of El Salvador, Hernandez has prior felony convictions including assault and threat. US Immigration and Customs Enforcement had placed a detainer on him.

The 6-year-old girl was found in Pennsylvania on Friday following a high-speed chase and crash.

The incident comes after Democratic Governor Dannel P Malloy issued an executive order to police chiefs, saying they should not take action solely to enforce federal immigration laws. Malloy's spokesperson said he supported detaining violent felons.
