Police in Guatemala arrested a ruling party lawmaker Saturday for involvement in plotting a 2015 killing of journalists.
Julio Juarez, of the FCN-Nacion party, was arrested near his home in San Bernardino, Suchitepequez, south of the capital.
He is suspected of having masterminded the killings, a spokeswoman for prosecutors said.
Prosecutors with a UN agency already had linked him to the crime last year.
About 6,000 people are killed each year in Guatemala, with about half the crimes linked to drug trafficking and gangs.
