    Federal authorities say a member of an international street gang has pleaded guilty to attempted murder in the stabbing of a rival gang member last year. 

    The U.S. Attorney's Office says 31-year-old Jose Hernandez-Miguel on Monday admitted under a plea deal that he and other MS-13 members stabbed a rival gang member near Highland Park in Chelsea on May 12, 2015. 

    The Boston Globe reports prosecutors say Hernandez-Miguel also pleaded guilty to cocaine distribution. Sentencing is scheduled for Feb. 21. 

    The office says Hernandez-Miguel was one of 61 individuals named in an August indictment targeting the alleged criminal activity of MS-13 gang members in the state.
