The federal judge responsible for sending various Mexican drug lords – including Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman – to prison was shot in the head outside of his home on Monday. Local authorities say judge Vicente Bermudez Zacarias, 37, was shot and killed at close range when he was leaving his home in Metepec, 43 miles outside Mexico City. He was rushed to hospital but died from his injuries. Bermudez Zacarias began serving as a judge at federal trials in Metepec in March and handled several legal challenges from El Chapo’s lawyers. El Chapo is currently in a Mexican prison near the Texas border. He has escaped from prison twice.
