CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico (AP) - Chihuahua state police say soldiers
have arrested a suspect in the killings of three people linked to
the U.S. consulate in Ciudad Juarez.
Police spokesman Enrique Torres says the Mexican army arrested
the suspect on Friday.
Consulate employee Lesley A. Enriquez and her husband, Arthur H.
Redelfs, were killed March 13 when gunmen attacked their car after
they left a birthday party. The husband of a Mexican employee of
the consulate was killed in a separate attack.
Torres said Monday the suspect is a leader of the Barrio Azteca
gang but he gave no other details.
U.S. and Mexican authorities say the Barrio Azteca gang works
for the Juarez drug cartel.
