Vega is in stable condition after self-inflicted gunshot wounds in his chest, Hidalgo County Sheriff Lupe Trevino stated, "When he is conscious and able to understand the proceedings, we will be arraigning him on two charges, the aggravated assault with a deadly weapon by striking his former wife on the head, probably with the gun I believe, and then of course we have the attempted murder."
