    Jennifer Kolar and Lacey Phillabaum seem unlikely criminals. Well-educated young women passionate about environmental causes, they share a love of the outdoors and similar backgrounds.

A 9-year-old boy tied up and choked to death. The killings, which happened in Juárez during the weekend, are representative of a town rendered violent by the economic desperation, by a powerful drug cartel and by corruption, experts said.
