LOS ANGELES (CNS) – A man who had been on the FBI's 10 most wanted list for more than two years was ordered to remain jailed without bail while awaiting arraignment in connection with the slayings of three people in 1998.

Superior Court Judge Shelly Torrealba ordered Jose "Joe" Luis Saenz – who was arrested late on Nov. 22 in Guadalajara, Mexico – to return to the downtown courthouse for arraignment Dec. 17 on three counts of murder and one count each of kidnapping and forcible rape.

The murder charges stem from the July 25, 1998, killings of rival gang members Josue Hernandez and Leonardo Ponce in what authorities believe was payback for an attack on an associate, along with the Aug. 5, 1998, slaying of his girlfriend, Sigrieta Hernandez.

The kidnapping and rape charges also involve Hernandez, the mother of his child. She allegedly had threatened to turn him in for the Hernandez and Ponce killings.

Saenz is charged separately with a fourth murder – the Oct. 5, 2008, slaying of Oscar Torres. Authorities said they have video of Saenz killing Torres in Whittier over a $600,000 drug debt. He is scheduled to be arraigned Jan. 8 on that charge. Known by such aliases as "Zapp," "Peanut Joe Smiley" and "Honeycutt," Saenz arrived at Los Angeles International Airport under guard about 7 p.m. on Friday, according to Laura Eimiller, a spokeswoman for the FBI in Los Angeles. "He was very difficult to find," Eimiller said. "It took a lot of determination."

At a Nov. 26 news conference at FBI headquarters in Westwood, Bill Lewis, the bureau's Assistant Director in Charge in Los Angeles, said the arrest was carried out "without incident" and that Saenz "was surprised."

"We do know that he took a couple of steps to mask his identity. He had some tattoos removed. He tried to alter his fingerprints and ... had gained a significant amount of weight, which changed his appearance," Lewis said.

Saenz, who allegedly worked for a Mexican drug cartel, had been under the surveillance of the FBI and Mexican law enforcement agents for weeks before he was arrested by Mexican agents as he left his apartment, according to the FBI. The FBI agents involved in the surveillance did not directly take part in the bust.

"This was a very well-thoughtout arrest plan," Lewis said. "They brought in a tactical team to ensure the safety of the officers and the citizens around."

Studies have shown that high volumes are associated with high quality and better outcomes, because experience is a major factor in quality of care. Wort was traditionally prescribed in parts of Europe for depression (in addition to use as a general-purpose tea), and Chinese medicine developed elaborate lists of herbs and preparations. With the scientific revolution in Europe and the United States, the use of traditional herbal remedies fell out of favor with the mainstream medical establishment, although a few people continued to use and maintain knowledge of traditional European herblore. In the early 20th century, scientists began reassessing this rejection of traditional herbs in medicine. Vorzüge eines intakten und lebendigen Gemeinschaftslebens bewahren.

The reasons for this are practical: many individuals in these families have a large number of nevi, and complete removal of them all is not feasible, since new atypical nevi continue to develop. In addition, individuals with increased susceptibility to melanoma may have cancer arise de novo, without a precursor lesion such as a nevus.
