Tony Rivera reads about Memorial Day weekend flooding in Uvalde County after finishing dinner in a cabana in Cozumel, Mexico. Rivera, of Uvalde, and his family visited Cozumel, Mexico; Montego Bay, Jamaica; and Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands during a weeklong cruise taken in early June.
A Uvalde man was hospitalized Saturday after receiving dozens of bee stings at his Birch Circle home. His condition was not known yesterday when the newspaper was printed. Uvalde Volunteer Fire Department members were dispatched to the
Uvalde’s first capital murder case since 1983 is expected to begin Sept. 12 in the 38th Judicial District Courtroom, with Sabrina Vielma standing trial for the 2011 death of her 4-year-old son Davaughn Rodriguez.
District Judge Camile DuBose will oversee the case, for which the prosecution is seeking the death penalty.
A second defendant, Cel’ves Cook, has also been indicted on capital murder charges for the young boy’s death; the prosecution has opted to try Vielma and Cook separately.
If found guilty, Cook also faces the death penalty. That proceeding is expected to begin following the conclusion of Vielma’s trial.
