Suspect in Brian Terry murder expected in federal court

Posted: Updated:
TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Happening later today, as the search and prosecution continues for the suspects in the killing of a U.S. Border Patrol agent, there is a new development in the case. 

One of the suspects is expected to be in federal court today.  He is facing a number of charges in the 2010 shooting of BP agent Brian Terry.  That court case is expected to start sometime this afternoon at the federal courthouse in downtown Tucson.  

The suspect is Ivan Soto-Barraza, 34, who is being charged with first degree murder as well as several other charges.  He was captured in Mexico in September, 2013 and was just extradited to the U.S. on Thursday.  Prosecutors say Soto-Barraza is among five men accused in the shooting death of agent Brian terry back in December 2010 near Nogales.  

Reports show that Terry was killed with weapons used from the botched U.S. gun smuggling probe known as Operation Fast and Furious.  

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder says this marks another step forward in our aggressive pursuit of those responsible for the murder of BP agent Brian Terry.  As for the other developments in this case, the federal government is still looking for two suspects.  

Two other men are in prison and another was just sentenced in February to 30 years in federal prison.  

According to a rep for the Brian Terry Foundation, none of Terry's family members are expected to be in court.

    Dozens came from as far as Flagstaff to Nogales in honor of the thousands of children waiting to be reunited with their parents. They may have been a small group, but they had a big message. "We want to make sure that those kids still get back to their families," said Christie Black, who traveled from Mesa for the vigil. Black and Julie Jorgenson never met in person until Saturday.
