Because the victim was pregnant, the murder charge against a Coppell man accused of killing a 19-year-old woman in April has been increased, authorities said on Wednesday. Simeon Bonilla-Rubio, 22, is currently accused of multiple capital murders. Upon his arrest on April 28, Bonilla-Rubio was first charged with murder. On July 15, he was indicted on a capital murder charge; however, the accusation has since been modified. The charge was altered because of pregnancy, according to Denton police spokesperson Amy Cunningham.
Cassity Hinojosa, the victim, was discovered to be pregnant at some point, but Cunningham said she was unaware of the date. The probable cause affidavit for Bonilla-arrest Rubio’s does not mention Hinojosa’s pregnancy, but police have established the two were dating. It is unknown how far along in her pregnancy Hinojosa was. The Tarrant County Medical Examiner determined that Hinojosa’s death was the result of murder. She was shot in the neck and passed away at a hospital.
The Denton County District Attorney’s Office claims that Bonilla-Rubio killed Hinojosa and her unborn child in the same occurrence in the redacted indictment. On April 28, callers reported seeing an unconscious woman in a car, prompting the Denton Police Department to respond to a domestic disturbance at 1:44 p.m. in the 1200 block of North Interstate 35E close to McCormick Street. The arrest complaint states that witnesses to a car accident witnessed a Hispanic male squeezing Hinojosa into the vehicle.
