West Texas jury convicts Mexican man of ordering slaying of consulate worker, 2 others in 2010

A federal jury has convicted a high-level Mexican gang member of participating in the 2010 slaying of a U.S. consulate employee in the border city of Ciudad Juarez, Mexico.

Arturo Gallegos Castrellon was found guilty Friday on three counts of murder for ordering the killing of Leslie Ann Enriquez Catton, a U.S. consulate worker, her husband and the husband of another consulate employee in Ciudad Juarez.

He was also convicted on eight other counts, including money laundering, racketeering and conspiracy to distribute controlled substances.

The indictment names 35 defendants. Twenty-five people have pleaded guilty, and one committed suicide in jail.

Gallegos was extradited from Mexico two years ago.
