Four members of the notorious MS-13 gang have been arrested for murdering a gang member turned police informant.
Houston law enforcement officers said on Monday that Marlon A. Miranda, 19, Wilson J. Ventura-Mejia, 22, Miguel Aguilar-Ochoa, 33, and Carlos Elias Henriquez-Torres, 18, have all been charged in the vicious killing of Victor Castro Martinez at a park in June.
Prosecutors believe the four men, who entered the country illegally, are also involved in seven other killings. A judge demanded that all four be separated from each other in different holding areas at the Harris County Jail.
According to the Houston Chronicle, Henriquez-Torres's custody was transferred to the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
Castro Martinez, 25, had been working as an informant, looking to make right after years of running with the infamous criminal organization that has caused grave concerns throughout the United States in recent years.
