Member of Rap Group Accused of Killing Fellow Performer

CORPUS CHRISTI - A member of a San Antonio rap group died at a hotel in Corpus Christi this weekend, now one of his bandmates is charged with murder.

The Hooligan Boyz opened up for Baby Bash on Friday night at Club XS. Several hours later, Corpus Christi police were called to a fight out the Embassy Suites Hotel on S. Padre Island Drive.

They arrived to find 31-year-old Miguel Silva unconscious. Medics rushed him to the hospital while performing CPR.

31-year-old Christopher Garza is being held for Silva's death. During a brief hearing this morning, Garza asked that the court appoint an attorney to his case. He also learned that the Sheriff's Department is fighting his request to be released on bond.

Judge Jose Longoria could not give Garza a reason for why his request to be released on bond was being denied.

Police have not released further details on what happened.
