A U.S. Border Patrol agent and four other men have been indicted on capital murder and other charges in the death of José Francisco Palacios-Paz, an Honduran immigrant whose decapitated body was found floating near Texas' South Padre Island.

Joel Luna is on indefinite leave from the Border Patrol. A Cameron County grand jury in Brownsville on Wednesday charged him and the others with capital murder, murder and two counts of engaging in organized criminal activity. He and the other four are in the Cameron County jail without bond.

Jail records don't list attorneys for them. At the time of the November arrests, Cameron County Sheriff Omar Lucio said a safe at Luna's Hebbronville home contained nearly US$90,000, a kilogram of cocaine and handguns.
