Will I be allowed into theUS after being deported and then extradited without a visa?

I am a British citizen and was arrested in the US for vehicular homicide. I was then deported for a visa issue that I had when I was previously in the US. I was told by immigration when I was being deported that I if I was to come back I would have to get a visa regardless of whether or not I had an outstanding warrant. The US has requested that I am extradited back and my country has agreed. Will immigration allow me back into the country since I was told I needed to get a visa before reentering and I have not got one?

No, you will not be permitted back in the US without a visa.  As far as whether you would be eligible to even get a visa, based on your arrest and the outcome of that will depend on whether that is a ground of inadmissibility.  To figure that out, you would need to clarify the outcome of your criminal case in the UK.
