Mexico police arrest man in priest's killing

A second suspect in the July 22 killing of a Roman Catholic priest was arrested, Mexican police said Sunday, the same day the dead body of another priest was found in the capital.

Police in the central state of Hidalgo told a news conference Sunday that Rogelio Fernandez Guzman, nicknamed "Cara de Guerra," or "War Face," was detained Saturday in Acapulco. He allegedly fled to the Pacific coast city in a car belonging to Rev. Fernando Sanchez Duran, 68, who was killed last week.

Sanchez Duran, who ran a parish in Tepeji del Rio, just north of Mexico City, was reported missing on Tuesday and his body was found Thursday at a local dam. Officials said he had been suffocated with a plastic bag.

Fernandez Guzman and another suspect - Ivan Segovia Gaspar, the priest's godson - are believed to have killed him after trying to get money from him, said state Attorney General Jose Rodriguez Calderon.

Segovia Gaspar was arrested earlier and allegedly told prosecutors that Fernandez Guzman committed the killing. Both are being held pending formal charges, which prosecutors are expected to file within a few days.

Also Sunday another priest was found dead in a parish residence in central Mexico City, government news agency Notimex reported citing the Mexico City Prosecutor's Office.

A photo from the crime scene showed the man with his hands, feet and body bound with what appeared to be strips of cloth. Authorities were investigating the death as a possible homicide, Notimex said.
