Bexar County Grand Jury indicts man for capital murder

This week, Bexar County Grand Juries handed down nearly 270 felony indictments.

Rogelio Sanchez is charged with capital murder. The indictment alleges that on July 5, 2020, Sanchez intentionally caused the death of Christina De La Cruz by shooting her with a deadly weapon (firearm) and that Sanchez was in the course of committing or attempting to commit the offense of kidnapping De La Cruz or Adrian Sepulveda or Gabriel Patlan. Sanchez is also charged in a second indictment with aggravated kidnapping. That indictment alleges that on July 5, 2020, Sanchez intentionally and knowingly abducted Gabriel Patlan by secreting and holding Patlan in a place where he was not likely to be found and by using and threatening to use deadly force, and during the commission of the offense Sanchez did use and exhibit a firearm with the intent to inflict bodily injury on Patlan. This case is pending in the 187th District Court.

David Rodriguez Jr. is charged with manslaughter. The indictment alleges that on March 11, 2020, Rodriguez did recklessly cause the death of Michael Prieto by discharging a deadly weapon (firearm) at and in the direction of Prieto. This case is pending in the 437th District Court.

These cases are being prosecuted by the Criminal Trial Division. Because they are pending trial, we can make no further comment on them.
