Weslaco police arrested a man for the murder of 26 year-old Donna Lee Bocanegra and for injuring her mother, 65 year-old Manuela Bocanegra last month and they say more arrests are coming.
19 year-old Lionzo Cantu is charged with murder and attempted murder and investigators are now looking for his accomplice. Police Chief Jose Perez says they're very close to making that second arrest.
According to Chief Perez, the gunmen tried to steal from the women and during the attempt, they fought back and that's when the men fired shots. Cantu's bond is set at $7.5 million dollars and is at the Hidalgo county jail.
