A drug suspect, Gunman, who was accused of murdering a US consulate employee and her husband in Mexico, was turned over to the United States.
The suspect of the drug alliance, who is convicted of murdering the Mexican-American consul and his husband, was handed over to the United States on Wednesday, the Ministry of Justice said.
Jose Guadalupe Diaz was tried in El Paso, Texas, after Leslie Ann Enriquez and her husband Arthur Redellhus died in Ciudad Juarez on 13 March.
Lawyers claim that Diaz is a member of Barrio Aztec, a border between American and Mexican members who have allied themselves with Juarez Cartel. Ten Mexican citizens, including Diaz, were prosecuted in connection with the killings of Enriquez and Ridelph, and Jorge Alberto Salcid Seniceros (37 spouses of Mexican nationals and US consulate couples) died.
He was shot in another car with another shot and two children aged 4 and 7 were injured.
A total of 35 luggage members and employees face physical injury, drug trafficking, theft, money laundering, judicial malfunctions and manslaughter. Defender Luis Mendes is still under investigation.
28 were found guilty and one convicted. The other commits suicide while in custody and the other three are to be handed over from Mexico to the US.
The murder has been bloodshed on the Mexican border as drug cartels continue to struggle against each other and against the authorities. Barrio Aztec is partnering with La Linea, part of the Juarez cartel, and is led by leader Joaquin El Chapo Gusman, who was previously jailed for drug trafficking in Juarez and Mexico for fighting Chihuahua with the Sinaloa cartel.
US government officials have rarely been attacked in recent years, but several American citizens were killed during the Mexican drug war.
Both Enriquez (35 years old) and Rederph (34 years old) were badly shot on wheels near the Santa Fe International Bridge connecting El Paso and Ciudad Juarez. It turned out that her baby was safe in the backseat.
Redelfs worked as an inspector in the prison of El Paso County. It was unclear what Enriquez did at the consulate. Diaz will respond to life in prison if convicted.
