HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- An MS-13 gang member is accused of killing a man because he insulted the gang during a rap battle.
Mario Guevara, 26, is charged with murder.
Federal agents and Harris County sheriff's deputies arrested Guevara Tuesday at a home on Sweetrock and Sugarmeade in northwest Harris County.
During his court appearance Wednesday, prosecutors said that Guevara was linked to a rival gang member whose decomposing body was found in a field last year.
The man who was killed and an unknown MS-13 gang member challenged each other to a rap battle, court documents show.
During the battle, the man disrespected the gang.
Documents state Guevara then ordered the man to be killed.
According to prosecutors, gang members used a woman to lure the man into their vehicle by saying she had a birthday present for him.
That was the last time anyone saw him.
Guevara's bond is set at $100,000. ICE took him into custody because he is from El Salvador and not a U.S. citizen.
The operation to catch Guevara was a joint investigation with the sheriff's office and Homeland Security investigations.
