PHOENIX (AP) - A June 10 sentencing date has been set for a Mexican man who pleaded guilty in the 2010 killing of a U.S. Border Patrol agent whose death revealed the botched "Fast and Furious" gun-smuggling investigation.

Manuel Osorio-Arellanes is only the person to have pleaded guilty in Agent Brian Terry's death.

2 of the five men accused in Terry's killing are in custody, while three others remain fugitives.

Two rifles bought by a gun-smuggling ring that was being monitored through "Fast and Furious" were found at the shooting scene.

Investigators declined to say whether the murder weapon was linked to a purchase from the operation.

Authorities have faced criticism for allowing suspected straw gun buyers to walk away from shops with weapons, rather than arrest suspects and seize the guns there.
