MEXICO CITY (AP) - Water-rights activists are questioning Mexican state prosecutors' theory that the murder of a state legislator-elect this month was orchestrated by his designated substitute.
The activists want federal prosecutors to take over the investigation. They say they mistrust the Sonora state investigation of the killing of Eduardo Castro Luque in northern Mexico.
The Citizen Movement for Water questions state prosecutors ruling out a dispute over an aqueduct being built to move billions of gallons of water from the farming city of Ciudad Obregon to the state capital of Hermosillo. The slain legislator-elect had made his opposition to the project a central theme in his campaign.
Group spokesman Alberto Vizcarra says the movement has asked the federal Attorney General's Office to take over the case.
