A fifth MS-13 gang was arrested Tuesday in the stabbing death of a man earlier this year, the police announced.

Francisco Antonio Rodriguez-Ulloa, 20, was charged with murder in the death of the 25-year-old Victor Castro-Martinez, who was found stabbed in a park of the city on 7 June, according to a press release distributed by the Houston Police Department.


Four other defendants — Marlon A. Miranda, 19, Wilson, J. Ventura-Mejia, 22, Miguel Aguilar-Ochoa, 33, and Carlos Elias Henriquez-Torres, 18, were also accused of murder on the victim’s death.

Authorities say all five suspects are members of the deadly MS-13 street gang.

Castro-Martinez was a police informant and was wearing a recording device when he was found dead, according to the Houston Chronicle. However, police chief Art Acevedo said that he was not killed because he was an informant, but mainly because he was a member of a rival MS-13 gang.
