SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Prosecutors say a San Antonio man has been indicted on capital murder charges in the deaths of a girl and three women in separate attacks since 2014.
Bexar (bayr) County prosecutors say they're seeking the death penalty for 29-year-old Johnny Joe Avalos (AH'-vuh-lohs). Investigators say the four victims were killed or mortally wounded during attempted sexual assaults.
Avalos, who was arrested last year, faces two counts of capital murder of multiple persons in indictments announced Tuesday. No causes of death were immediately released.
The body of 15-year-old Natalie Chavez was discovered in December 2014 under a San Antonio bridge. Rosemary Perez was slain in January 2015.
The body of Celia Ann Lopez was discovered in April 2015. Prosecutors say Genevieve Ramirez survived an April 2015 attack but died two months later.
