Bond reduced for teen brothers in Pharr homicide case
A judge reduced the bond of two brothers accused of severely beating their stepfather and dumping his body in a field in McAllen.
Police arrested 18-year-old Alejandro Trevino and 17-year-old Christian Trevino and charged them with the death of 42-year-old Gabriel Quintanilla last month. A third person, Juan Eduardo Melendez, was also arrested and charged in the same case.
Police say the homicide occurred after a minor made an outcry about being inappropriately touched by Quintanilla
After hearing testimony in support of Alejandro Trevino and Christian Trevino, a judge lowered their bonds from $1 million and $1.5 million, respectively, to $150,000.
The judge also ordered both men to not have contact with the family of the victim.
