Third suspect arraigned in connection with Mission homicide


MISSION, Texas – A third murder suspect is arrested in connection to the death of Fernando Garza Jr. His body was found in a Mission orchard on Saturday, July 27th.

Earlier this week two other suspects in the case, Julio Cesar De Leon and Edna Araceli Rivera, were formally charged and are being held without bond. Authorities say Garza was the couple’s roommate and was allegedly murdered over a drug robbery dispute.

Today 19-year-old Alfredo Huerta was arraigned on Capital Murder charges and is also being held without bond.
