As Dreamers Cristian Zamora and Ricardo Leonel Campos Lara, fence jumpers from El Salvador, did on Sept. 23, 2013.
From the Houston Chronicle:
Two men avoided a potential federal death-penalty trial on Friday by pleading guilty in Houston to their roles in a 2013 gang-ordered revenge killing.
Cristian Alexander Zamora, 22, and 19-year-old Ricardo Leonel Campos Lara each admitted to one count of aiding and abetting murder on federal property in connection with the near-decapitation of a Klein Forest High School student with a machete and bat in the Sam Houston National Forest.
The men, who both are from El Salvador, admitted to participating in killing 16-year-old Josael Guevara based on a hit directed by MS-13 leaders. The pair also said they assisted in taking the teen to the forest, which is near Huntsville. Guevara's body was discovered following an anonymous 911 call in September 2013.
Another alleged attacker, Jose Leonel Bonilla-Romero, was charged with murder in Walker County. That case remains in pre-trial status. The teen does not face federal charges, but is currently scheduled to be tried as an adult in state court. He was 17 at the time of his arrest in October 2013.
Zamora, Campos Lara, Bonilla-Romero and Guevara were allegedly members of MS-13, an El Salvador-based gang known as Mara Salvatrucha.Importing gang members is a bad idea, legally or illegally. There are many reasons to dislike Jeb Bush. This is another one.
