The couple’s 8-year-old son told police he saw Rojas-Mendez allegedly beating Garcia with his steel-toe work boots on Friday night, according to court documents obtained by KHOU.
The next morning, after the boy summoned neighbors in an effort to help rouse Garcia, investigators who arrived found blood-spattered walls and floors, and discovered the victim with blunt force trauma to her head and body, according to those documents.
Investigators said Garcia had been dead for several hours.
Authorities who identified Rojas-Mendez as a suspect allege he contacted his sisters after the alleged attack to borrow money for an “out-of-town job.” According to the court documents obtained by KHOU, they said he sounded “stressed out,” but they did not offer any financial help.

32-year-old Texas mom arrested for forcing herself on her 12-year-old son
A Texas mother, Brittany Rouleau was arrested as she ordered her little boy of mere 12-year-old to strip naked inside their Wichita Falls home in 2018 before raping him. She is now being held at the Wichita County Jail on a $100,000 bond and has been charged with aggravated sexual assault on Saturday.
According to the reports, the 34-year-old mother attacked her son after questioning him about masturbation while she was undressing and the boy had just gotten out of the shower. The boy told the investigators that he was sitting on the bed that they both shared when his mom entered the room. Rouleau then began taking her clothes off and also ordered the little boy to do the same.
The son said that he raped him in their shared bed and then told him to clean himself up. The boy then reportedly went to sleep on the couch and also informed his mother that whatever happened between them genuinely felt wrong. However, the mom replied that it is likely for him to get into trouble as he accepted what just happened.
According to reports, Rouleau then warned the victim to not share the news with anyone else. After two years of this incident, the son confessed to another adult who cares for him and then he was brought to the police by his guardian. The boy again repeated the allegations when he was taken to Patsy’s House Child Advocacy and shortly afterwards Rouleau was then arrested.
She later denied any sexual intercourse with the victim but eventually admitted the fact that she had sex with him.
WHILE TAKING A NAP, MORGUE WORKER CREMATED ACCIDENTALY
Beaumont, Texas | A morgue worker in the Jefferson County morgue has been pronounced dead this morning after being accidentally cremated by one of his coworkers.
While he was sleeping, another employee mistook him for the corpse of a 52-year-old car accident victim and carried him to the crematory.
Before anyone could notice the mistake, he had already been exposed to temperatures ranging between 1400 to 1800 degrees Fahrenheit and reduced to ashes.
Jenna Davis, one of Henri Johnson’s coworkers, says she heard him scream for about 15 seconds after the crematory was activated.
Ms. Davis claims that the young coworker who caused the accident was a new employee and had forgotten to check for the toe tag to make sure he had the right body.
Jenna Davis says she heard the victim scream in agony as the crematory was reducing him to ashes.
The police have opened an investigation to determine the exact circumstances surrounding Mr. Johnson’s death.
Investigators have not ruled out the possibility of filing criminal charges against the employee who caused his death.
The young man could possibly be accused of criminal negligence causing death.
Arkansas Woman Arrested After Raping a 14-Year-Old Boy
A woman from Arkansas has been arrested for allegedly having sexual relations with a 14-year-old boy. The suspect was busted after the boy’s parents caught her forcing herself to have sex on their son.
According to Jonesboro Police Department, the suspect, Mallory Brooke Manley, is facing multiple counts of rape and internet stalking of a child, as reported by Kait 8 News.
Suspect allegedly stalked teen online
The parents of the 14-year-old boy had caught 25-year-old Mallory Brooke Manley from Jonesboro and their son having sex.
After the discovery, the two were immediately subject to investigation. Investigators questioned the underage boy and Manley to figure out how long the abuse has been going on.
The victim told the investigators that both he and Manley had were involved in sexual acts for five to six times.
However, the statement of the boy and from the 25-year-old suspect did not match. According to Manley, the two of them had sex at least 10 times. Investigators also discovered that she had been stalking the teen online.
On October 25, Manley was arrested by the police along with JPD’s Internet Crimes Against Children Division. The ground for her arrest was a rape case. The suspect is currently in the custody of the Craighead County Jail according to News4 San Antonio.
A bond amounting to $250,000 is set on Friday for Mallory Brooke Manley. She will be facing court on November 24.
A Similar Case
In a similar case that occurred this year, a 20-year-old woman was also arrested for raping an underage boy. She was sentenced to spend eight months in prison for the case of second-degree rape of a minor.
However, she will be sentenced to 78 months of jail time if she does not obey the orders of law enforcement authorities.
Similar to the case of Manley, the 20-year-old woman also conducted sexual acts with a minor age 13 years old on multiple occasions. The suspect admitted to the crime she committed.
