WESLACO – One of Venezuela’s most wanted fugitives will have to wait nearly two months before his trial.

Tirso Antonio Melean-Castellano was formally charged late last week on two separate federal counts of being in the country illegally and possessing a firearm.

He pleaded not guilty to both counts.

Melean-Castellano admitted to purchasing the weapons at a Rio Grande Valley gun show.

He’s also wanted in Venezuela for murder and organized crime.

He remains in custody of U.S. Marshals.
