Maria Jimenez, aka La Tosca, was arrested last week in the northern city of Monterrey for her deadly role in the feared Los Zetas drug cartel.
The 26-year-old widow, who has reportedly confessed to the killings and several other crimes, was paid $1,700 per month.
She gunned down rival drug traffickers and a police officer – and was detained alongside three male assassins.
Five other men and women, accused of working as drug dealers and look-outs, were also arrested. Their gang allegedly controlled 14 drug selling hotspots in Monterrey’s metropolitan area.
