Bexar County Grand Juries hand down indictments in two murder cases

This week, Bexar County Grand Juries handed down 265 felony indictments.

Reyes Huerta Gallegos is charged with murder. The indictment alleges that on July 7, 2019, Gallegos intentionally and knowingly caused the death of Cecilia Huerta Gallegos by manner and means unknown to the Grand Jury. This case is being prosecuted by the Family Violence Division in the 144th District Court. Murder is a first degree felony punishable by 5 to 99 years or life in prison and a possible fine of up to $10,000.

Mark Wong is charged in two separate indictments:

  • Murder: The indictment alleges that on Aug. 21, 2021, Wong intentionally and knowingly caused the death of Curtis Raymond Smith by strangling Smith with a deadly weapon (ligature), that in the manner of its use and intended use was capable of causing death and serious bodily injury.
  • Aggravated assault with a deadly weapon: The indictment alleges that on Aug. 20, 2021, Wong used and exhibited a deadly weapon (firearm), and that Wong intentionally, knowingly and recklessly caused bodily injury to Timothy Shane Dean by shooting Dean with said deadly weapon.

This case is being prosecuted by the Criminal Trial Division in the 144th District Court. Murder is a first degree felony punishable by 5 to 99 years or life in prison and a possible fine of up to $10,000.

An indictment is not a finding of guilt. A person charged by indictment is presumed innocent until found guilty beyond a reasonable doubt by a jury or a judge. Because these and potentially other cases are either pending or may be under investigation, we can make no further comment on them.

Copies of indictments may be requested from the Bexar County District Clerk. Information on court settings can be found by searching the case online or directly from the court.
