Julian Zapata Espinoza, a cell commander of the brutal Los Zetas drug cartel, pleaded guilty Thursday in federal court in the District to the killing of agent Jaime Zapata and the attempted murder of his partner during a February 2011 daylight ambush on a major highway 250 miles north of Mexico City.
The Obama administration on Wednesday offered up to a $5 million reward for information leading to the capture of the suspected drug traffickers who shot and killed a U.S. immigration agent and wounded another in Mexico last month.
The director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement on Tuesday told the parents, friends and associates of slain ICE Agent Jaime Zapata that the U.S. and Mexican governments would "bring the long arm of the law down" on the drug smugglers who killed him and wounded his partner Victor Avila.
