DALLAS - A Mexican immigration official says a Texas woman and her son, a teen known for invoking an "affluenza" defense after a deadly drunken driving wreck, will be returning to the United States on Wednesday.

The official, who is not authorized to be quoted by name, told Associated Press reporter E. Eduardo Castillo that there are no seats available on commercial flights to allow a Tuesday return.

The official said Ethan Couch and his mother, Tonya Couch, will stay at immigration facilities in Jalisco's state capital, Guadalajara, where they will be given food and rooms with beds. 

Couch, now 18, was placed on probation after the wreck but fled the country as authorities began investigating whether he violated terms of his sentence.
