Five people were charged Saturday in the killing of a news photographer, whose death was seen as an attack on press freedom in Argentina.
Jose Luis Cabezas, a photographer for the weekly investigative newsmagazine Noticias, was burned alive in his car in the resort of Pinamar on Jan. 25. He was handcuffed and had a bullet wound to the head.
The five people, detained earlier in the week, were charged after Judge Jose Macchi questioned them Friday night, Macchi’s secretary Mariano Caseaux told reporters.
