Marco Cobos, 19, allegedly used multiple knives to stab Etta Nugent to death for about 40 minutes to an hour, according to the charging documents which prosecutors read aloud during his first appearance in court Wednesday morning. The medical examiner reported finding more than 13 stab wounds on the 75-year-old woman’s body.
He has been charged with capital murder in Nugent’s death. The Mexican national is being held at the Harris County Jail without bond and federal authorities have placed an immigration detainer on him.
Cobos, who also is homeless, had sought help from Nugent to fix his broken down Ford F-150, but she was unable to “because of her age,” police said.
The truck Cobos had been sleeping in had been reported stolen in Phoenix, Arizona, authorities said. Before the attack, neighbors said they saw Cobos and his vehicle parked outside Nugent’s home in the 8100 block of Neff Street. More
Just what did this thug think a 75-year-old woman could do to fix his broken-down Ford. It had a dead battery so did he expect her to push the truck until it started?
Obama’s dreamers are our nightmares.
