A judge from the state of Guanajuato linked José Antonio Yépez Ortiz El Marro, leader of the Santa Rosa de Lima Cartel, to the prosecution for the crime of aggravated kidnapping.
The resolution was issued this Sunday by the Guanajuato control judge during the continuation of the initial hearing of the accusation that the Attorney General’s Office of the state of Guanajuato has against El Marro.
This accusation arose after El Marro was found on August 2 inside a home located in Juventino Rosas, where an alleged kidnapping victim was also rescued.
For these events, elements of the Armed Forces and the local prosecutor’s office detained Yépez Ortiz and eight other people.
El Marro and the detainees were brought before the Control judge and indicted for aggravated kidnapping and attempted homicide; However, the Guanajuato Attorney General’s Office has not specified whether Yépez Ortiz has already been linked to the process for the second of these crimes.
The hearing was held by videoconference, since last Friday El Marro was transferred to the Altiplano federal prison, where a federal judge issued an arrest warrant for organized crime and the theft of hydrocarbons.
His legal situation in the federal case will be resolved next Wednesday, because his defense requested the duplicity of the constitutional term.
In addition, next Tuesday it will be possible to know if the alleged leader of the Santa Rosa de Lima Cartel, José Antonio Yépez Ortiz, El Marro, will be linked to a process for the crimes of organized crime and fuel theft that the Attorney General’s Office imputes to him (FGR).
