However, the sealed records do not show what charges were made, and he may be indicted as part of a wider conspiracy.
Michel Marizco, of Fronteras Desk reports:
Officials at the Central Arizona Detention Center, a private prison in Florence, Ariz. confirm that Rito Osorio-Arellanes has been in custody since December 13, 2010. The date is important: Agent Terry was shot that night, 125 miles south in a canyon near Rio Rico, Ariz.
The unsealed court documents do not specify the new charge against Osorio. In fact, they do not reveal much. They were released after a consortium of Arizona media asked the judge to unseal the Terry murder case in federal court. The judge agreed, but only unsealed parts of the case.
As a result, it is not known the specific charge Osorio faces in connection with Terry’s killing. The paperwork merely shows he is listed as a defendant in an indictment handed down in November 2011.
However, unrelated court documents show Osorio was arrested for illegally re-entering the country on Dec. 12, 2010. The criminal complaint filed against him shows he was arrested near where the murder took place.
