MEXICO CITY—Mexico says it has extradited another suspect in the 2010 killing of a U.S. consulate employee, her husband and another man to the United States.

Suspect Joel Abraham Caudillo faces charges of racketeering, drug trafficking, money laundering, and obstruction of justice.

Caudillo is alleged a member of the Barrio Azteca gang, which allegedly killed consular employee Leslie Ann Enriquez Catton and her husband in the border city of Ciudad Juarez.

The Attorney General's Office said Monday that Caudillo was extradited Dec. 20.

It said he allegedly helped cover up or destroy evidence in the killings.

A U.S. grand jury indicted a total of 35 gang members in the crime, almost all of whom have been arrested.
