A hit man for a Mexican drug cartel pleaded guilty to murder in a Laredo court room.
19 year-old Rosalio Reta pleaded guilty to the murder of Mosies Garcia that happened in the parking lot of the Torta Mex restaurant in East Laredo back in December of 2005. Following the plea, a judge sentenced Reta to 30 years in prison. He's already serving 40 years after pleading guilty to the murder of another man. Prosecutors say both crimes were hits ordered by the leader of the group of Zeta hit men working for the Gulf Cartel.
