Double murder and kidnapping suspect to face charges

The man who killed two women, kidnapped another and tried to drown himself afterwards will be arraigned Monday afternoon.

The suspect is expected to face charges for beating and stabbing two women to death in a home north of Weslaco Sunday morning.

He will also be charged for kidnapping a neighboring woman.

She was able to escape hours later after the suspect stopped at Rudy TMs Barbeque in McAllen before he fled again.

Authorities found the man Sunday evening attempting to drown himself in a Weslaco sewer pond.

He was placed under suicide watch in the Hidalgo County Jail.

The suspect will face the judge at 2 p.m.
