Trial is set for a murder suspect in Harlingen. Anthony Eliff III pleaded not guilty to murder, choosing to skip his in-person arraignment due to the coronavirus.

Eliff is accused of killing 41-year-old Guillermo Garcia. He was found dead in his car February 6 with a single gunshot wound to the chest.

Eliff’s trial date is set for September 21. 

Officers are still investigating Eliff’s possible connection to a missing person case, 32-year-old Elyn Loera, a Corpus Christi resident who hasn't been seen since late 2019.

According to Loera’s mother, she came to the Rio Grande Valley to visit her boyfriend, Eliff.

Police are awaiting for test results on human remains that were found in San Benito in February to determine if they may be Loera's.

The remains have no been positively identified yet.

Correction: This story previously stated Elyn Loera's remains had been found in San Benito. It now reflects the correct information: The remains found in that area have not yet been identified.
