A San Antonio couple has been indicted by grand juries in Atascosa and Wilson counties in connection with a tri-county rampage that resulted in the death of a police officer. The pair are among 46 defendants indicted Jan. 29 in Wilson County.
The suspects, 32-year-old Shaun Ruiz Puente and 28-year-old Jenevieve Ramos, were each indicted Jan. 29 on a charge of attempted capital murder for their alleged roles in a shootout with Poth Police Patrolman Roberto “R.J.” Sanchez Jr. An Atascosa grand jury indicted the pair during a special court setting Jan. 29, charging each with capital murder and with aggravated assault of a peace officer.
According to a press release from the 81st Judicial District Attorney’s Office, prior to their shootout with Sanchez, Puente and Ramos are accused of shooting at two San Antonio police officers who pursued the pair into Atascosa County. One of those officers, Robert Deckard, suffered a gunshot wound to the head that resulted in him crashing his patrol vehicle. Deckard died of his injuries Dec. 20.
Attorneys for the 81st Judicial District -- which includes Atascosa and Wilson counties, along with three others -- have continued to work alongside their counterparts from the Bexar County District Attorney’s Office in the prosecution of these cases.
Also among those indicted in Wilson County Jan. 29 were:
•Jerry Lee Janysek of Poth, charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon for his alleged role in a July 27 shooting that critically injured Anthony Fish of Poth.
•Robert Martinez Huron of Floresville, charged with one count each of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and deadly conduct, for allegedly firing a gun at his son in a home on Montesito Lane north of Floresville.
