Heraclio Osorio-Arellanes is due in a Tucson court later today. The Mexican man is one of seven people charged in the slaying of Brian Terry.

He and other agents were conducting an operation in the desert in 2010 when he was killed.

The shooting revealed a failed sting in which U.S. agents allowed criminals to buy firearms with the intention of tracking them.
