Body found; suspects face murder charges
SAN ANTONIO -- Two suspects are being held, each in lieu of $1 million bond, in the Bexar County Jail in connection with a body found June 18 in a pasture off Donop Road west of I-37 in far south Bexar County.
According to the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office, Cameo Marcus Clines and Antoinette Martinez -- both 19 -- have been charged with capital murder in the commission of another felony in connection with the robbery and subsequent slaying of 20-year-old Xavier Joseph Cordero. Clines, who is being held in connection with an unrelated aggravated robbery June 29 in which a San Antonio convenience store clerk was shot in the face, allegedly confessed to robbing and killing Cordero, said sheriff’s office spokesman Rosanne Hughes.
Officials believe that Martinez lured Cordero to her apartment with the promise of sex. When he entered the apartment, Hughes said Cordero was confronted at gunpoint and subsequently placed into the trunk of his own car. The pair drove Cordero to the ranch off Donop Road, where he was shot multiple times. The property owner later found his body and contacted authorities.
Cordero is the son of San Antonio Police Department Detective Xavier Cordero, according to a KENS 5 TV news report.
