Quadruple Murder Suspect Facing Lawsuits, Divorce
MCALLEN - A man accused of killing four relatives is now also facing a lawsuit and a divorce.
Roberto Aguirre Rojas reportedly confessed to killing his mother-in-law, his two stepsons, and his own son in a December shooting. He's been charged with four counts of capital murder.
He also faces an attempted capital murder charge for allegedly assaulting and shooting of his 25-year-old wife.
She's now filing for divorce and claims to have emotional distress.
The lawsuits are reportedly taking a toll on Rojas' defense.
During today's court hearing, the judge asked Rojas why he has a court-appointed attorney, when Rojas has three highly-valued pieces of property that could be leveraged.
The defense lawyer said it's because the new lawsuits are costing a lot of money.
Also during today's hearing, prosecutors announced they'll be seeking the death penalty.Technorati Tags: Quadruple,Murder,Suspect,Divorce,news,Stephanie,Email,Last,Update,MCALLEN,lawsuit,Roberto,Aguirre,Rojas,December,capital,wife,defense,attorney,lawyer,money,Also,death,Lawsuits,pieces,krgv,four
