9/2/2016 - Pair Indicted for Capital Murder of 7-year-old Iris Rodriguez

San Antonio, Texas, September 2, 2016: Earlier this week, a Bexar County Grand Jury indicted Frank Gomez, age 28, and Manuel Watson, age 22, for the Capital Murder of 7-year-old Iris Rodriguez. Additionally, the defendants were indicted for two counts of Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon.

On June 1, 2016, the defendants were leaving Cuellar Park around 10 p.m. on the 5000 block of San Fernando on the city’s west side, when they encountered the victim, her mother and her mother’s boyfriend. Witnesses said words were exchanged between the victims and the defendants, when gunfire erupted. Iris suffered a gunshot wound to her head and died from her injuries. Her mother suffered a gunshot wound to her arm.

A third suspect, Jonathan Campos, committed suicide in the Bexar County Jail in July. A fourth suspect, Peter Gonzalez, was arrested but has not been indicted at this time. His case is currently under review. Capital Murder is a felony, punishable by life in prison without the possibility of parole or death. Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon is a second degree felony, punishable by 2-20 years in prison and up to a $10,000.00 fine. The cases are pending in the 187th District Court.
