Mora-Ramos was charged as an accessory to first-degree murder in the death of 38-year-old Rafael Hernandez-Torres.

Hernandez-Torres’ body was found in the trunk of his partially submerged taxi in the Caney River in April 2015.

He’d been shot nine times in the chest and back.

Mora-Ramos was apprehended by U.S. marshals after his fingerprint was discovered on beer cans near the scene.

Roman Medrano was also arrested for first-degree murder in connection to the shooting.

The 41-year-old is scheduled for sentencing in July.
