The man accused of killing a Daphne woman with his truck Sunday is an illegal immigrant, and according to law enforcement sources, has been deported twice.

Jose Luis Alonso-De Leon was in a Baldwin County courtroom Monday afternoon on a number of charges including manslaughter. Investigators said he hit and killed 48-year-old Amy Hawkins while she was riding her bike on County Road 13 in Fairhope. Alonso-De Leon left the scene and was arrested by Fairhope Police at the Baldwin Square Shopping Center on Greeno Road.

According to investigators, Alonso-De Leon was drunk and had a stolen gun in his vehicle.

Prosecutors said they have their hands full trying to figure out the suspect's criminal background because he has used a lot of different names.

"We have him listed under seven different aliases," said Baldwin County Assistant District Attorney Teresa Heinz."It will be a long process for us to go through each and every one of those aliases. We're going to have to rely a lot on fingerprints and prior photographs taken during the booking process in a variety of different jails."

Alonso-De Leon is being held on a $500,000 bond.
