Hidalgo County Grand Jury Hands Up Indictment In Drug Death Of Local Musician


A Donna man has been indicted in the drug death of a Valley banda musician at a bar in downtown McAllen last fall.

The McAllen Monitor reports the indictment charges 31-year-old Jose Raquel Lerma with four counts of manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance resulting in death and serious bodily injury.

Investigators say Lerma sold four men some fentanyl-laced cocaine which they ingested in the bathroom of the Old Beer House early the morning of November 14th. All fell unconscious and 29-year-old Sergio Sanchez later died. Sanchez and two of the other men were members of a banda band playing at the bar that night.
