Feds Extradite Drug Trafficker Who Killed Border Agent

January 28, 2010  | 

Federal agents cooperating with the Mexican government have extradited Jesus Navarro-Montes and indicted him in connection with the duty death of border agent Luis Aguilar two years ago, according to the FBI.

Navarro-Montes, who is also charged with various narcotics offenses, will face a second-degree murder charge for running down Aguilar with his SUV on Jan. 19, 2008.

According to the indictment, U.S. Customs and Border Protection Border Patrol Agent Aguilar was on duty in the Imperial Sand Dunes Recreation Area in Imperial County, Calif., when he was struck and killed by a Hummer H2 driven by Navarro-Montes.

The indictment further alleges that Navarro-Montes conspired to distribute marijuana. If convicted of the charges, he faces a sentence of 40 years on the narcotics charges and life in prison on the murder charge.
