Court Resumes Mother's Murder Case
EL PASO — Trial begins Tuesday for an El Paso woman accused of beating and killing her three-year-old daughter.
Yara Perez's first trial ended in a mistrial. The 30-year-old woman is charged with capital murder for the death of Jacqueline Gonzalez.
The toddler's body was found in 2007 inside the trunk of Perez's car. Her case first went to trial in June but a judge declared a mistrial after a juror overheard security guards discussing the case and then told other jurors what they said.
