Daniel Calvillo, 29, a citizen of Piedras Negras, pled guilty to the Dec. 9, 2020, murder of Giovanna Barrera. Evidence showed Calvillo walked up to Barrera while she was sitting in a car and demanded her cell phone before he shot her. 

In exchange for his guilty plea, Judge Frank Castro sentenced Calvillo to the Texas Department of Criminal Justice Institutional Division for 40 years for murder and 10 years for an unrelated robbery. The sentences will run concurrently. Calvillo potentially faces deportation upon his release.

“This young woman was taken from her family for no good reason. I know it was hard for the Barrera family to see the man responsible for her murder in court this morning, but they made she he leaves knowing how much the woman he killed was loved. Prison never fills the void of a loved one lost, but it is holding this defendant responsible for his crime,” said District Attorney Joe Gonzales.

Assistant District Attorney Clayton Haden of the Felony Trial Division prosecuted this case in the 399th District Court. The Bexar County Sheriff’s Office investigated the crime.
