El Salvadoran accused in priest slayings indicted on perjury charges

A former El Salvadoran government minister accused of colluding with other officials in the murder of six Jesuit priests now faces up to 40 years in prison after a grand jury indicted him on perjury charges, authorities said.

Inocente Orlando Montano of Everett tried to hide his military experience from immigration officials and lied about when he entered the United States, the U.S. Attorney’s office said in announcing indictments against the 69-year-old Salvadoran.
