Chihuahua state prosecutors in northern Mexico revealed that they have won a 430-year sentence against a man who was found guilty of murdering 11 young women near Ciudad Juarez from 2009-2012.

The area, which sits directly across the border from El Paso, Texas, has been infamous for serial killings of women since the 1990s.

The prosecutors’ office announced Monday that Pedro Payan Gloria drugged the women, forced them to prostitute themselves and sell drugs, and then murdered them when they were no longer of any use.

Payan Gloria and several other suspects were members if a gang who operated a modeling agency, clothing store and small grocery, which was used to lure the women by offering employment, The Guardian reported.

Pedro Payan Gloria was sentenced to 430 years in prison for the murders of 11 Juarez women.{ }

Most of the victims abducted were young factory workers.

“These businesses were used by the gang as a ‘hook’ to offer young women jobs. Once they obtained the information they needed from the women’s job applications, they used different techniques and other people to kidnap them or pressure them into forced prostitution, and the consumption and or sale of drugs,” the state attorney general’s office said.

The women’s remains were discovered in 2012 in fields in the Juarez Valley, a mostly agricultural area.

Few of the early cases have properly been investigated by authorities.

The sentence is symbolic because Mexico regularly limits sentences to 60 years.

Two other suspects have a.ready been convicted in the case.
