Parents of Ganado murder suspect charged with aiding him
The parents of a Ganado man who fled from authorities after he was implicated in the beating death of Freddie Anzaldua in February also now face legal action.
A Jackson County grand jury indicted Robert Perez Sr., 59, and his wife, Lisa Perez, 54, also of Ganado, on hindering apprehension or prosecution charges, a third-degree felony, on May 31.
The couple do not have an attorney, but they will be arraigned July 18, according to court records.
They are charged with warning and aiding their son, Robert Garcia Perez, 31, who had an outstanding warrant charging him with murder, manslaughter and aggravated assault causing serious bodily injury.
U.S. Marshals caught Robert Garcia Perez hiding out with his father in Wheeler County on March 22.
Neighbors found Anzaldua, 50, dead in the front yard of a white, one-story home in the 200 block of Farm-to-Market Road 1683 in Ganado on Feb. 2.
Investigators have not released what they believe may have been the motive in the crime.
Robert Garcia Perez is being held in the Jackson County Jail, where he is awaiting trial.
