"An accused drug trafficker can't be extradited to the U.S. on a charge for which she was acquitted in Mexico, a Mexican federal court panel has ruled, dealing a blow to efforts in both countries to prosecute the woman known as 'Queen of the Pacific.' In a separate ruling also made public Tuesday, an appeals court upheld a judge who acquitted Sandra Avila Beltran on drug-trafficking, money-laundering and organized-crime charges in December, citing lack of evidence."
