Man Accused of Killing Valley State Trooper Indicted on Capital Murder Charge
EDINBURG – The man accused of killing a Rio Grande Valley state trooper has been indicted again by a grand jury.
Victor Godinez was formally indicted Thursday by a grand jury with capital murder in the death of Trooper Moises Sanchez.
Godinez was initially charged with three counts of attempted capital murder; one of those charges was upgraded due to Sanchez passing away four months later from the injuries he sustained from the shooting.
A pretrial hearing is set for Oct. 24.
