HERMOSILLO, Mexico -- Law enforcement officials say assassins have shot to death a deputy-elect in the northern Mexican state of Sonora two days before he was scheduled to take office.

State prosecutors say Eduardo Castro Luque was shot nine times Friday, including once in the head. He was killed in his car outside his home, and two assassins fled the scene on a motorcycle. He was elected to Sonora's state Legislature, representing the Institutional Revolutionary Party.
