A Brownsville man remains behind bars, charged with murder and aggravated assault in a knife attack that killed another man and wounded a second.
Brownsville police say an argument had broken out early last Wednesday morning in a neighborhood south of downtown, where investigators say 37-year-old Robert Galvan stabbed the two victims, also from Brownsville. The two were able to drive away, ending up at the Wildrose Apartments several miles north, where one of the men, 54-year-old Horacio Eguia, was pronounced dead. Galvan is jailed on bonds totaling $1.1 million.
The Brownsville Herald reports that three weeks ago, the Cameron County District Attorney’s Office filed a motion to revoke Galvan’s community supervision, citing court records showing he had violated several provisions of his supervised release related to a previous assault conviction. The motion asked that Galvan be ordered to prison to serve his 10-year sentence. District Judge Gloria Rincones denied the motion.
