    The U.S. Border Patrol says agents arrested a 41-year-old man with a long criminal record that includes a manslaughter conviction in Canada after he walked into Vermont from Quebec on a residential street in the community of Derby Line.

    The Border Patrol says Patrick Morin was spotted at about 6:30 p.m. on Friday as he was heading south into Vermont near the international boundary.

    Morin originally gave a false name to agents, but he was identified through a biometric record check.

    Court documents say that Morin, who has no criminal history in the United States, had hoped to escape Canadian law enforcement and create a false identity in the U.S.

    Morin's attorney did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
