A Bexar County Grand jury indicted Andre McDonald this morning on two felony charges related to the death of his wife, Andreen.
McDonald was first indicted on a charge of murder. The indictment alleges that on February 28, 2019, Andre McDonald intentionally and knowingly killed Andreen McDonald. Further, the indictment alleges that Andre McDonald intended to cause serious bodily injury to Andreen McDonald and committed an act clearly dangerous to human life that caused her death. Murder is a first-degree felony. If convicted, Andre McDonald could be sentenced to from 5-99 years or life in prison.
In addition, Andre McDonald was also indicted for tampering with evidence. The five-count indictment alleges that on March 2, 2019, knowing hat a missing person investigation was in progress, he intentionally and knowingly altered, destroyed or concealed a receipt, a hammer, clothes and shoes with the intent to impair their verity, legibility and availability as evidence in the investigation. Tampering with evidence is a third-degree felony. If convicted, Andre McDonald could be sentenced to 2-10 years in prison.
An indictment is a charge and should not be considered evidence of guilt. Because these cases are pending trial in the 399th District Court, our office can make no further comment on these indictments.
