BOGOTA (AP) - A judge - who had been investigating a murder charge against the drug baron Pablo Escobar - and three of her police bodyguards were killed in Medellin on Friday by four gunmen. Miriam Rocio Velez, one of the 'faceless' judges who try drug-trafficking and terrorism cases, had been investigating the 1986 murder of Guillermo Cano, publisher of El Espectador. She is the third judge in the case to be killed.
