Drug War: Mexican Drug Boss Indicted For Texas Murder

CBS Dallas / Fort Worth: "An alleged lieutenant of the Sinaloa cartel has been indicted in the U.S. for conspiracy in the kidnappings and deaths of a West Texas man and three New Mexico men.

Jose Antonio Torres-Marrufo, who allegedly ran the cartel’s operation in Juarez, Mexico, was also indicted on drug trafficking and money laundering counts.

Torres-Marrufo was arrested in February in Leon, Guatnajuato, Mexico, and awaits extradition. Attorney information was not immediately available.

The indictment unsealed last week accuses Torres-Marrufo of conspiring to kill a man in 2009 with the initials S.S. That coincides with Sergio Saucedo, abducted from his home and killed in Mexico.

Two men were found guilty and one more pleaded guilty of the kidnapping of Saucedo. He was taken at gunpoint from his house in Horizon City, Texas, while his wife and child watched. He was found dead with his hands chopped off several days later in an unpaved street in neighboring Juarez, Mexico." read more
