Brazilian officials say arrest orders have been issued for a police commander and seven fellow officers in connection with the murder of a Brazilian judge.

Judge Patricia Acioli was shot to death on August 12 by masked assailants. The judge was known to be a crime fighter who pursued rogue police officers.

The suspects include Sao Gonzalo police battalion commander Claudi Luiz Oliveria.

The Brazilian newspapers report Oliveria is suspected of ordering the death of Judge Acioli.
