El Paso trial begins in death of US consulate worker

EL PASO, Texas (AP) The prosecution has given its opening statement in the trial of a high-level gang member accused of participating in the 2010 slaying of a U.S. consulate employee.

Defense attorneys waived their statement as proceedings began Monday in the El Paso trial of Arturo Gallegos Castrellon, who prosecutors say is a member of a border gang affiliated with a drug cartel.

He's accused in a multi-count indictment of drug trafficking, money laundering and participating in the shootings that killed Leslie Ann Enriquez Catton, a U.S. consulate worker in the Mexican border city of Ciudad Juarez. Her husband and the husband of another consulate employee were also killed.

Castrellon was extradited from Mexico in 2012.

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