Fire victim seeks aid for clothes, other losses

 
 
Following a fire that tore through her mobile home on June 21, a single mother and her three children are seeking help to replace clothing and other belongings.
 
Patrice Garcia said she was outside when the fire ignited in her mobile home, located at Lot 189, Uvalde Estates Drive.
 
“I was outside. My son told me, ‘Mommy, there is fire,’” she said. Garcia’s first thought was that her daughter was asleep inside.
 
Garcia said she rushed into the home to retrieve her 11-year-old daughter.
 
Once the family was safely outside, Garcia phoned 911. Within minutes, the area was teeming with Uvalde Volunteer Fire Department members and Uvalde County Sheriff’s Office deputies.
 
The cause of the fire has not yet been determined, but the homeowner believes it was electrical.

One death penalty case on docket

 
Kimberly Rubio, staff writer
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.
