Judicial officials in Mexico say the murder of a federal Congressman in the southern state of Guerrero last month was ordered by a political rival. Moises Villanueva, a representative in Mexico’s lower house, the Chamber of Deputies, was found dead two weeks after being abducted.
Police said two men confessed to the crime and implicated a local mayor. The suspects said the mayor, whom the authorities have not named, paid them $22,000 to kill Mr Villanueva. Mr Villanueva was abducted along with his driver, Erick Estrada Vazquez, on 4 September.
Their bodies were found by the roadside in the southern state of Guerrero two weeks later. Forensic reports at the time said they had been shot dead.
