A man and woman were two detainees Tuesday night after leading police on a pursuit through town. The pursuit caused a second vehicle to strike a utility pole at the intersection of Garden and High street, where the pursuit ended.
Ismael Gonzalez, 2, died Nov. 27 from massive internal injuries that were allegedly inflicted by his mother’s boyfriend early on Nov. 25, just hours before Sarah Gonzalez was scheduled to arrive home from her out-of-town job.
Severo Rosas Cuellar, 34, of 1071 Homestead Road, Lot 370, was arrested that night by Uvalde County Sheriff’s Office on charges of injury to a child. He is being held without bond.
The suspect was charged while the young boy was still alive. Additional charges are pending an autopsy performed by the Bexar County Medical Examiner’s Office.
Cuellar, a registered sex offender, also had an outstanding warrant for violating probation or parole. He is a parole transfer from Minnesota. Because his victim was an adult, child restrictions were not placed on him, per guidelines set by the state of Texas.
