A Mexican national has been indicted in the December killing of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry near Rio Rico.
Manuel Osorio-Arellanes of El Fuerte, Mexico, was named in a 14-count indictment unsealed Friday by a federal judge. He faces second-degree murder, weapons and conspiracy charges. Osorio-Arellanes is not accused of firing the shot that killed Terry.
Also indicted are his co-defendants, fugitives whose identities remain under seal. The indictment marks the first charges in Terry's death five months ago.
Osorio-Arellanes was arraigned Friday in a federal courtroom in Tucson. He faces trial on June 17 before U.S. District Judge David Bury.
"Today's indictment is an important step in this case, but it is only a first step to serving justice on behalf of Agent Brian Terry, his family, and the other agents who were with Terry and their families," said U.S. Attorney Dennis Burke.
