PREVIOUSLY-DEPORTED ILLEGAL BEATS DESERT STORM VETERAN TO DEATH

FEBRUARY 27, 2017
Charges are expected to be upgraded for a Honduran national who beat a Desert Storm veteran to death in South Texas.
Earlier this month, 32-year-old Andres Roberto Ortiz was taken into custody in McAllen more than a week after fleeing a roll-over accident he’d had in a stolen vehicle.
Law enforcement had located the owner of the vehicle, 56-year-old Jose Luis Oveido, brutally beaten outside of his home in late January.
“Ten days after the incident, police said they connected Ortiz to the crime,” reports KRGV.
