'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

A Monroeville businessman pleaded guilty Wednesday to federal tax evasion.

Suhendra S. Ajmani, who had a coal brokerage business, American Coal and Minerals Co., pleaded guilty to filing a 2004 tax return stating that his wife and he had a joint income of some $411,000, when in fact it was more than $1.8 million, court documents show.

Ajmani, who is accused of cheating the Internal Revenue Service out of $540,281, is scheduled to be sentenced June 2 before U.S. District Judge Maurice Cohill Jr.
