Mexican national pleads guilty to murdering border patrol agent

Posted: Updated:

A 17-year-old Mexican national has pleaded guilty to murdering a border patrol agent in July.

According to prosecutors, Christian Castro-Alvarez admitted he lured agent Robert Rosas, Jr., out of his car during a robbery attempt near Campo.

The teenager and several of his co-conspirators struggled with Rosas, 30, before shooting him eight times.

Castro-Alvarez faces life in prison when he is sentenced in February 2010.

The border patrol did not say if there have been other arrests, but they did say the investigation is continuing.
