A Texas resident has been accused of murdering her grandmother, 57 years old.
Carlos Lara Balcazar (34-year old illegal alien) was taken into custody and accused of murdering Maria Rios (57-years-old grandmother and mother of three daughters).
According to La Marque police, Lara-Balcazar had initially been charged with evidence tampering in connection to Rios’s murder. Lara Balcazar has been charged with her murder, however, after evidence found in nearby dumpsters led police to believe that he was the prime suspect.

One of Rios’s daughters, Cynthia Espindola, told KHOU 11 News that her mother “loved everyone”And “was the voice of the family.”
“The one that got the family together,”Espindola spoke of her mother. “I just can’t believe that somebody could be that evil to do something to a woman who just did not deserve it.”
Lara-Balcazar has been placed in Galveston County Jail by Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The detainer requests that if Lara-Balcazar is released from local custody at any time, he will be turned over to ICE agents for arrest and deportation.
