Crisantos Moroyoqui-Yocupicio Chandler Police Department
A Chandler man convicted of murder in the 2010 beheading of a man in a Chandler apartment was sentenced to 14 years in prison. Crisantos Moroyoqui-Yocupicio, 39, pleaded no contest to second-degree murder in March and was sentenced Wednesday by Judge Joseph Kreamer of Maricopa County Superior Court.
Moroyoqui-Yupicio, an undocumented immigrant, was accused of beheading 38-year-old Martin Alejandro Cota-Monroy, who authorities say had stolen drugs from a Mexican drug cartel.
Moroyoqui-Yocupicio faced a punishment ranging from 10 to 16 years in prison.
Authorities believe the killing was intended to send a message that anyone who betrays the traffickers will get the same treatment. The case has been cited as an extreme example of Mexican cartel violence spilling over the border.
On the night of October 10, 2010, police officers responded to a gruesome scene at an apartment in the Phoenix, Arizona, suburb of Chandler. The cops found the decapitated body of 38-year-old Alejandro Cota-Monroy. He was the first isolated case of Mexican cartel violence spilling over the U.S. border.
Last week, Crisantos Moroyoqui-Yocupio pleaded no contest to participating in the murder of Cota-Monroy, a suspected mid-level member of the Beltran-Leyva drug trafficking organization who allegedly stole drugs from a gang aligned with the Sinaloa Cartel. Three other suspects who fled to Mexico remain at large.
According to police in Phoenix, the beheading was intended to send a message about what happens to people who try to get over on the cartel. Mexico is used to the macabre killings. Headless bodies have been dangled from bridges by their feet; severed heads have been sent to victims’ family members and government officials; and bags of heads have been dropped off in high-profile locations.
Arizona has long been a hub for human traffickers and dope smugglers. Forty-four percent of all marijuana seizures near the nation’s borders were made in the Border Patrol’s Tucson sector from October 2011 through September 2012. According to the homicide report, citing border patrol intel, Cota-Monroy had stolen 400 pounds of marijuana and some meth from the PEI-Estatales/El Chapo drug trafficking organization. Cota-Monroy told the cartel that the Border Patrol had seized the drugs, but the cartel learned the truth and hired men to kidnap and kill him in Nogales, Mexico.
But Cota-Monroy had a silver tongue. He convinced his captors that he’d pay back the money and used his house as collateral, the report states. But he was lying. The house wasn’t his. Cota-Monroy fled to the Phoenix area, leading the cartel to hire assassins to go to Arizona, befriend the thief and kill him. >>MORE<<
Jodi Arias: Can I clean up before my mugshot?
The Arias case promises to be sordid, with accusations of sexual abuse and stalking. Investigators found thousands of e-mails, text messages and “sexting” photographs, as well as photos the couple had taken of each other while having sex just moments before the murder. The last photo taken was of Alexander lying dead in his shower, with a bullet in his head, 27 stab wounds and a slit throat. ( Oh yeah I think they said something about how this was a suicide attempt?
This whole Jodi Arias ordeal is disgusting with all the press attention that this trial has gotten, basically glamorising the whole bloody mess making her the victim of this brutal murder that she has admitted too; …by giving her entirely to much face time through the TV, Internet, etc., trying to make it a real life ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ or something!
Why the MSM keep saying she is a poor little beautiful killer is beyond me even when she was a bleached blonde, kinky sex which she knew what she was getting into, Mormon convert. Or even better taking a camera crew into the jail cell she has to stay in, and talk about the meals she is made to eat. Ummmmm duh she’s in jail because she commited a crime. It’s not suppposed to be a vacation retreat.
Some will say that i’m just saying that because i’m a female; jealous of her looks or situation?
Well, I’m not because I am very comfortable in my skin and with the way I look. Or some will say that the killing was due to Domestic Violence? I say bs to all that think that, there are thousands of women and men subjected to real domestic violence that don’t go around killing people.
Whooptie Do! She made a lame ass Tee Shirt that said survior on it, that she was going to make (how?) and sell for the money to go to what?
It’s a real life crime people that has taken place, not some kinky story you all have read and want to live it or have sexual fantasies about?!
It seems the MSM/Jew Hollyweird dropped the ball big time,
by not giving the Christian/Newsom trial all the same sort of coverage.
That was a real life horror story committed by some worthless parasite scum of this this earth and even hell on that night of January 2007 .
Trust me they where a beautiful white couple; savagely taken from this world. Oh but I forgot they must have been a little to boring and no best selling books to compare it too.
While my heart aches for the C/N families and the horror they are subjected too, there are many other untold/unknown horrifying cases that lack all the MSM attention when a Black or other ‘mionority’ commit a crime against Whites.
That is one of many reasons why I’m happy to be with newsnet14, to bring those hidden stories to the forefront, when MSM won’t. shera~
