CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico (AP) - State prosecutor Jorge Gonzalez says the three masked men pulled up in a car and shot Marisela Escobedo Ortiz.
Escobedo had been protesting for three days in front of the
governor's palace in Chihuahua. She had been campaigning for
justice in the killing of her teenage daughter since a judge
exonerated the main suspect in April.
Seventeen-year-old Rubi Frayre Escobedo's body was found
dismembered and burned in 2008. Her live-in boyfriend had been
charged with her murder.
Gonzalez said Friday that Escobedo was killed Thursday night.
