Two indicted in ’08 murder
Two men who face charges in a 2008 murder are among the 23 suspects indicted by a Wilson County grand jury July 2.
Agapito Rios and James Jimenez are each charged with shooting 35-year-old Ricardo Lopez de la Rosa Jr. to death on or about June 25, 2008. A passerby reported finding de la Rosa’s body that evening in a bar ditch off C.R. 115 near the Atascosa County line. He died from a single gunshot wound to the head.
No shell casings were found at the scene, which led investigators from the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office to believe that de la Rosa’s body was dumped after the San Antonio man was murdered elsewhere. Assistant District Attorney Audrey Louis of the 81st Judicial District said new evidence was discovered that led to the arrest and indictment of Rios and Jimenez, who are currently incarcerated federal inmates.
Bond for Rios and Jimenez is set at $250,000 each.
Also among those indicted in Wilson County July 2 was Bobby Schroeder, 29, of Floresville. He was reindicted on charges of aggravated robbery, aggravated kidnapping, and burglary of a habitation with intent to commit aggravated robbery.
Schroeder was initially indicted on these charges April 26, following a March 15 incident in Floresville. According to the indictment, these counts were enhanced to first-degree felonies because Schroeder was convicted in Wilson County in 2007 of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. His total bond remains set at $150,000.
The grand jury also indicted Carlos Barrera-Alvarado, 53, of Floresville, who is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. This charge stems from a March 18 incident in which he allegedly struck a man with an automobile following a fight at Big Dan’s bar in Floresville. His bond is set at $30,000.
