A California man once employed by U.S. Customs and Border Protection admitted to recruiting his estranged half-brother, a gravedigger and former gang member in El Salvador, to kidnap his wife and strangle her to death in 2016 after suspecting that the victim was carrying on an affair.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Central District of California said that Eddy Reyes, now 38, pleaded guilty to kidnapping resulting in death late last week several years after the murder of 21-year-old Claudia Sanchez Reyes, the mother of their young son.
