A man involved in a high-profile Edmonton killing a decade ago was removed from Canada and sent back to Vietnam on Tuesday.

Manh Phi Nguyen, 31, was convicted of manslaughter in 2002 in the 2000 slaying of John Arruda.

Nguyen had been in the custody of Canadian border officials since he completed his prison sentence in October.

His brother, Hoang Phuong Nguyen, was also convicted of manslaughter in Arruda's death.  He was deported to Vietnam in 2008. 

Arruda, 29, was driving his car in a south Edmonton neighbourhood, when he was chased, attacked with a meat cleaver and knives and left to die.
