Guatemala nabs third suspect in folk singer murder

Guatemala's chief prosecutor says a third suspect has been detained in connection to the killing of Argentine folk singer Facundo Cabral earlier.

Attorney GeneralClaudia Paz y Paz says 45-yeard-old Juan Hernandez Sanchez was arrested south of the Central American country's capital Sunday.

Authorities have said Cabral was not the intended victim. They say the target of the July 9 attack was Nicaraguan businessman Henry Farinas, who was driving the singer to the airport when they were ambushed.

Two suspects were detained two days after the attack. National police are looking for two more Guatemalan suspects as well as a Costa Rican man they believe masterminded the shooting.
