Alleged smuggler faces life in jail - El Paso Times

Quote:
EL PASO -- The alleged leader of an immigrant-smuggling ring that used the Gateway Hotel as a safe house faces up to life in prison because an immigrant died during a border-crossing attempt in Downtown El Paso, the U.S. Attorney's Office said Thursday.

Maria Isidra Luna-Avila, also known as Doa Chila, is charged with alien smuggling resulting in death along with smuggling, conspiracy and other charges.
