CAMERON COUNTY - A suspect is now headed to court in a 5-year-old Cameron County homicide case. The suspect is charged with capital murder in the death of a man in an RV on South Padre Island.
Jury selection is set for Monday in the case against Dennis Wayne Capps. He's accused of killing Brian Aldrich in June 2006 near Beach Access No. 5 on South Padre Island.
Authorities found Aldrich's body inside an RV. Investigators believe he was killed during a robbery attempt. Capps failed to show up for a hearing in 2007. He was on the run for two years until he was caught in Nicaragua.
Two others have been arrested in connection with the killing. The victim's girlfriend Wanda Jens and another man, Fidencio Martinez, were both arrested in 2007.
