Crisantos Moroyoqui, Man Who Kind of Redeemed Jan Brewer for Headless-Bodies Comment, Pleads No Contest in Beheading

The man who kind of made Governor Jan Brewer's comments about headless bodies a reality pleaded no contest to cutting a man's head off in Chandler in 2010.

"Law enforcement agencies have found bodies in the desert either buried or just lying out there that have been beheaded," Brewer said back in the day.

The problem with Brewer's comment was that there actually were no headless bodies strewn about the Arizona desert.

Brewer kind of got her redemption in October 2010, when Chandler PD discovered the headless body of a man found in a Chandler apartment building. He apparently had lost his head as retaliation for stealing 400 pounds of weed from a Mexican drug cartel.

It wasn't quite a case of headless bodies in the desert, but it was close enough, and the Associated Press reports that Crisantos Moroyoqui-Yocupicio pleaded no contest yesterday in the man's death.

FYI, the plea was to second-degree murder, so, at age 38, there's a chance this fellow will see the light of day after serving 10 to 16 years in prison.
