Trial date set for men charged with murder and sexual assault
BROWNSVILLE, TX (KVEO NEWSCENTER 23) — A trial date is set for two suspects accused of murdering and sexually assaulting a pregnant teen in August.
Marco and Benjamin Hernandez, who are not related, are going to trial on June 26th. They're suspected of sexually assaulting and murdering 19 year-old Stephanie Gonzalez before setting fire to her home.
Gonzalez was pregnant at the time and both face capital murder charges, because the arson and sexual assault happened at the same time.
