(Deming-AP) -- Two Mexican brothers are being held in the death of a 32-year-old Mexican woman who collapsed in the desert near Columbus.
The death of the woman was the first documented death of an illegal immigrant in New Mexico this year.
Border Patrol spokesman Doug Mosier says 27-year-old Humberto Chavira Ordones and 26-year-old Baldomero Chavira Ordones face smuggling resulting in death charges.
The woman�s name is being withheld because her family has not been notified.
She was found Friday afternoon on a county road in southern Luna County after a member of her group notified a rancher. She died en route to the hospital.
A Border Patrol helicopter helped agents track 13 other immigrants in the desert from footprints found where the woman was left.
