The local police chief of Yurécuaro, his deputy and another underling have been tied to the killing last week of a mayoral candidate of the National Regeneration Movement (Morena).

Michoacán state Attorney General José Martín Godoy Castro said in a statement Wednesday that the three knew about a plan to attack Enrique Hernández, a mayoral candidate in Yurécuaro. Godoy Castro said he would file charges of participation through omission in a homicide.

Godoy Castro alleges that the suspected masterminds behind the attack, Adrián Alonso Guerrero Covarrubias and Heraclio Guerrero Martínez, paid the local police 10,000 pesos a month (US$656) for protection and on May 14 told them to leave town so they could kill Hernández.

He says their beef with Hernández apparently stemmed from a disagreement over control of a sandbank.
