"A Mexican court has begun the trial of a 14-year-old U.S. citizen accused of working as a hitman for a drug cartel. The defendant is identified only as Edgar. He was born in San Diego and raised in Mexico by a grandmother. Prosecutors say that after his December arrest the teenager confessed to killing four people whose decapitated bodies were found in Cuernavaca, south of Mexico City." (07/18/11)
