Border beat: Prosecutors oppose Terry family reuest to join case; Yuma border agents honored

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON, Ariz. -- Federal prosecutors are opposing a request by the parents of murdered Border Patrol agent Brian Terry.

They want to be added as a party in the case against the man accused of buying two rifles found at the scene, so they can stay updated.

But prosecutors say Terry was a murder victim, but not a victim of the firearms offenses relating to the gun smuggling ring.

And two Border Patrol agents killed when their SUV was hit by a train are being remembered in Yuma.

The families of Hector Clark and Eduardo Rojas will lay a wreath at the base of a monument marking their deaths.

A permanent cross will be placed at the site of the crash near Gila Bend. Clark and Rojas were killed in may while tracking drug smugglers.

An investigation shows they likely confused a moving train with a stopped train before turning in front of it.
