López Alonzo is charged with crimes against humanity for his role in the Dos Erres massacre, in which more than 200 people were killed. He is also accused of falsifying the identity of and abusing Ramiro Osorio Cristales, who was five years old at the time his family was killed in the massacre and who was forced to live with López Alonzo until he turned 18.There's sufficient evidence to begin the trial but authorities are having a difficult time scheduling the case with appropriate judges on appropriate high risk courts. Justice delayed.
