Two held in Coast Guard officer's death

A federal complaint charged the men in the death of the officer who was fatally injured when the boats collided


LOS ANGELES — U.S. prosecutors charged two Mexican nationals with killing a U.S. Coast Guard officer when they rammed their boat into his, the Justice Department said.

A federal criminal complaint filed Monday in Los Angeles charged the men in the death of Chief Petty Officer Terrell Horne III, who was fatally injured Sunday while Horne and another Coast Guard member were scoping out a suspicious panga boat — a 30-foot-long open-bowed fishing vessel — near Santa Cruz Island in the Channel Islands National Park, Justice officials said in a release.
