Sources close to the prosecutor’s office confirmed that Judge Luis Edwin Mugarte Guerrero issued the arrest warrant against this subject, for a crime of femicide, but so far the government of Tabasco has not executed it yet.

In the next few hours the arrest warrant should be executed as response to the request from the authorities of Yucatan, so that the hearing will be carried out through a videoconference. This means that Medina Sonda will not leave the Tabasco prison nor will he be transferred to the Oral Justice Center of Merida.

The Prosecutor’s Office will request Medina Sonda to be charged with the crime of femicide, as probable mastermind of the Molina Canto murder, while the other three linked to prosecution, the two hitmen and the contact, are still being investigated for the crime of homicide.

Tabasco state prosecutor Fernando Valenzuela Pernas reported yesterday morning that the writ of the Yucatan prosecutor’s office has already been confirmed so that Medina Sonda will respond to the possible crime of femicide.

He explained that the judge could determine bringing the accused to Merida to judge his case despite being already sentenced to more than 12 years for another crime: money laundering during the previous government.
