Mexico City, March 7 (EFE) A Mexican woman soldier has been arrested on charges of taking part in the killing of three teenagers who slashed her daughter’s face during a brawl at a disco, the authorities said.
Sgt. Virginia Resendiz Rodriguez was detained at Santa Lucia airbase with assistance from the military police, Mexico City prosecutors said Friday.

The slayings took place April 20 last year after a clash between members of rival gangs at El Castillo del Abuelo, a club in the capital suburb of Reyes la Paz.

Several gang members used broken bottles to slash the face of Resendiz’s daughter, leaving her with “severe” injuries.

Learning of the attack on her daughter, Sgt. Resendiz took help of some people to pursue the alleged perpetrators, three of whom were fatally shot on their way home, prosecutors said.

The dead - aged 13, 14 and 17 - belonged to the “AK-49 gang”.
