EDINBURG — Relatives of Fermin Limon wept and hugged after sunset Monday, outside the Hidalgo County Auxiliary Court, where Limon’s family said their slain loved one saw justice.

“My father was a great person — a great man,” his daughter, Mireya Limon, 31, said. “He didn’t ask to be put in that situation, but he deserved justice and that’s what we got today.”
