Judge dismisses charges in Southeast Side manslaughter case due to lack of probable cause
SAN ANTONIO – Manslaughter charges against a 22-year-old man, who was previously suspected of being involved in a deadly shooting at a Southeast Side apartment complex, were dismissed after a judge ruled there was a lack of probable cause in the case, according to Bexar County records. Witnesses told investigators they saw Jose Maria Galindo run from a bedroom at the Pecan Valley Apartments after hearing a gunshot on Jan. 22. Investigators arrested Galindo in La Salle County soon after, but because a judge did not find enough reasonable grounds for the manslaughter charge, the case was dismissed. Galindo is still in the Bexar County Jail on a charge of assault of a public servant, according to records. The Bexar County Sheriff’s Office says the bond in the assault case was increased to $15,000.
