HIDALGO COUNTY - Two men were charged Tuesday in the shooting death of a woman at a Palmview bar.
A judge charged Anthony Stewart with murder in the death of his girlfriend Sandra Andrade. Stewart told the judge the shooting was accidental.
Hidalgo County Sheriff Lupe Trevino said Stewart's story doesn't add up.
"It very well could be an accident, and maybe an accident by recklessness - which would be manslaughter," Trevino said.
"We're talking about a Berretta, those things just don't go off unless you pull the trigger," Trevino said of the weapon used.
Stewart's friend, Eric Robles, also was charged in the case. Robles is accused of hiding the weapon after the shooting. Trevino said his deputies recovered the .25-caliber pistol.
