The Mexican Army has arrested five men in connection to the murder of El Pasoans Arthur Redelfs and his wife Lesley Enriquez back in January.

Their murder made headlines around the world.

Redelfs was a jailer with the El Paso County Sheriff's Office and Enriquez worked for the U.S. consulate in Juarez.

Enrique Lopez, Raul Calderon Loera, Juan Duron Moreno, Eduardo Morales Herrera and Jesus Herrera Torres were arrested in Chihuahua City.

Police say they were about to commit robbery and murder.

They are allegedly members of the Barrio Azteca gang.

Authorities say the men are also connected to the murder of eleven Artist Assassin gang members.

When arrested, authorities say they found two handguns, two machine guns and 10 kilos of marijuana.

Here we have someone posting about how can a one eye man belong to a cartel. The cartels have young kids that kill for the cartel. You should wake up and look around, the killings care coming to El Paso.

I read a lot of post and people are making fun of all this but, once it happens in your back yard then who will be calling for the Feds and police to do something.

Do it now before it gets late and you are up to your arm pits with gangs and killings.

Not fair at all! How can a blind man choose to belong to a group of foreigners and commit murder.

Next: the authorities will tell us they suspect Herrera was the driver of the car and or the sharp shooter.

My heart goes out to Citizens on both sides of the border and pray to God in the Name of His Son Jesus to stop the murders. I pray to commission angels to guard the warriors of righteousness as that is all that will protect you. May the God of Righteousness be God once again in your countries. I'm a native Texan and used to own property in Hudspeth county when younger, retired now but feel a heart of love for my favorite part of the world. The desert should bloom from winter rain. Peace.

With all my respect for you & your well meaning thoughts, all that Godly thing amount to no more than BS. My opinion and my question: It's a war between the haves and havenots'. Why should this and more of the bad things happens to a country where just about any minor or mayor decision is made by the population, the name of god and its blessings is invoked.

Peace
