The man charged with killing a U.S. Border Patrol Agent tied to the gun-trafficking operation “Fast and Furious” plead guilty today.
It’s Mexican National Manual Osorio-Arrellanes. As part of his plea agreement, he says someone in his group shot Border Patrol Agent Brian terry back in December 2010. In turn, prosecutors agreed not to seek the death penalty.
Terry’s death has been linked to the botched “Fast and Furious” Operation, allowing guns to cross the border. And Osorio-Arrellanes conviction is the biggest to date in the case.
Of the four other men charged in terry’s death, one is in custody, and the other remains fugitives. Authorities have offered a $1-million reward for information leading to their capture.
