Local News

EDINBURG, Texas – Will the shooter who is accused of killing a Texas DPS trooper face the death penalty? It’s a question the Hidalgo County District Attorney’s office has yet to answer. Only because evidence is still being reviewed.

However, on February 6th, they’ll have to make a decision on IF they’ll seek the death penalty for Victor Alejandro Godinez. He’s accused of shooting Texas DPS Trooper Moises Sanchez in the head back in April.

Trooper Sanchez died in August after a surgery to repair part of his skull. Godinez has plead not guilty and remains jailed on a $3 million bond.
