Drug lord Ernesto “Don Neto” Fonseca Carrillo, who killed a DEA agent in 1985, will serve the remainder of his sentence on house arrest.

The 86-year-old co-founder of the Guadalajara Cartel was in prison until he was transferred to house arrest Thursday, the Associated Press reports.

Fonseca will live in his house in Mexico State, which borders the capital.

Federal prisons chief Eduardo Guerrero said he was opposed to the release, but he had to respect the judge’s order of house arrest.

“From the government’s perspective, we believe it is not right that someone who did so much damage to this country is today serving the end of this sentence on the outside. … He did a lot of damage to society and he should still be, according to all the studies, inside a federal prison,” Guerrero said.

Fonseca was convicted in 1985 of kidnapping, torturing and murdering DEA agent Enrique “Kiki” Camarena.
