US prosecutors request to detail 'El Chapo' alleged brutal crimes in court

US prosecutors request to detail 'El Chapo' alleged brutal crimes in courtWhen Mexican drug kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman learned in 2006 his men had captured two suspected members of the rival Las Zetas cartel, he first wanted to have lunch. Next the now jailed El Chapo — then one of the world’s most powerful drug traffickers — ordered the men beaten and killed with bullets to the head, before their bodies were thrown in a hole and ignited. The chilling incident is among the violent crimes allegedly carried out by Guzman included in a more than 90-page long memo filed Tuesday in a Brooklyn federal court, where he is slated to go on trial September 5.
