SAN ANTONIO – A man and woman charged in the murder of a 24-year-old woman over her cellphone have also been charged in an aggravated robbery in Terrell Hills that happened just days before.

According to arrest warrant affidavits, Daniel Calvillo and Keyana Jones robbed and assaulted a man who was walking on Terrell Road at about 10 p.m. on Dec. 7.

The victim told Terrell Hills police that a man and woman approached him, pointed a gun at him and put a knife to his throat. The attackers were wearing black hoodies and face masks when they physically restrained him and demanded his valuables. The man and woman stole the victim’s iPhone, wallet, coat and keys. They then assaulted him and left him bleeding from the head and neck. He was discovered in the road by a passerby.

Security footage from a residence on Terrell Road shows a man and woman running on Cross Road a short time after the crime with an illuminated iPhone in one of their hands.

Investigators say the victim’s stolen credit cards were used to make purchases at a Quick Trip gas station at 310 San Pedro about an hour later. Security footage from the store showed the male suspect using the stolen credit card to make purchases and showed the couple leaving in a black Chevrolet HHR.

Investigators were able to identify the suspects after they were arrested for the Dec. 9 murder of 24-year-old Giovanna Barerra. Calvillo and Jones are accused of killing Barerra after demanding her cellphone as she got into her vehicle in the 7600 block of Tarrasa where she had just finished roller-skating.

Calvillo and Jones are each charged with capital murder and a weapons charge in the Bexar County murder case.

During the investigation, BCSO recovered the vehicle seen in the Quick Trip security camera videos and found a debit card, coat and iPhone belonging to the victim who was assaulted on Terrell Road and alerted Terrell Hills police.

Calvillo and Jones are now each charged with aggravated robbery in the Terrell Hills case.
