A Mexican federal judge has sentenced Juan Carlos N., alias “El Larry”, to 50 years in prison for the murder of journalist Miroslava Breach three years after the crime, prosecutors said in a statement this Saturday.

After more than seven months of hearing, the case was reopened last Thursday and ended with this verdict against the only one detained in an area near the journalist’s house for the events of March 2017.

The local press has recalled that Breach has been under constant harassment since March 2016 when he received pressure on his news about drug trafficking in Chihuahua.
