Two arrested in murder of Mexican federal judge

June 29, 2020 10.52am

Mexico City: Authorities in Mexico have arrested two people in connection with the murder of a federal judge and his wife in mid-June, prosecutors said on Sunday, while in Mexico City 17 of the 19 suspects detained in a failed attack on the capital's police chief appeared before a judge.

Both attacks have been attributed to the powerful Jalisco New Generation Cartel and are seen as major challenges to Mexico's government and the security strategy of President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador.

A suspect in the judge's killing was located and detained in the city of Cuauhtemoc, in the western state of Colima, thanks to intelligence work by Mexico's marines and prosecutors, the Attorney General's Office said in a statement. The office said a second suspect was also arrested, but provided no more details.

Meanwhile, Mexico City prosecutor's office said 17 people detained in Friday's assassination attempt against Police Chief Omar Garcia Harfuch appeared before a judge.
