March 14th, 2009 - 1:23 am ICT by GD  

Gabriael Cardona- Ramirez also known as “Pelon” and “Gaby” a professional assassin or the “sicaro” for the Gulf Cartel and the Zetas has been sent sentenced to imprisonment for life. This was announced today by the United States Attorney Tim Johnson today. Gabriel Cardona is 22 years of age.

Last year in August, Ramirez was convicted of a conspiracy to abduct and kill in a foreign soil, a violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 956. These charges that led to the conviction had stemmed from the abduction and killing of youths from Laredo, Jorge Alfonso Aviles who was 19 years of gage at the time of his death and Inez Villarreal a minor of 14, at a nightclub named Nuevo Laredo on the 30th of March, 2006.

Among the 14 defendants arrested resulting from the 42- count indictment that was returned to the federal court on the 4th of March 2008, Ramirez was one. According to the indictment, the charges were for conspiracy to drugs and money laundering, with the involvement of high-ranked members of the Gulf Cartel and the Zetas, the enforcers of the cartel. The indictment also alleges that as a part of the conspiracy several sicaros or hit squads were put into operation on either sides of the border inducing the killing of rival members of the Sinaloa Cartel to forcibly gain control to the port of entry and corridor of the Nuevo Laredo-Laredo.

Since his arrest in April 2006 Cardona Ramirez has been in a ‘without bond’ federal custody.
