2 People Charged With Capital Murder for Boy's Death

CORPUS CHRISTI - A man and woman are facing charges of capital murder for the death of a 6-year old boy on Wednesday night.

Medics were called to a home on Fig Street to treat the boy who was having seizures. Doctors at the hospital were unable to save the boy, but also noticed he had bruises on his body.

This morning Corpus Christi police arrested his mother, 27-year-old Nancy Rae Martinez, and 27-year-old Albert Villarreal on capital murder charges.

Investigators say Villarreal lived in the home with Martinez and her son.

Two other children from the home were turned over to Child Protective Services.
