Brisket sandwiches are being sold for $6 along with chips and a soda. They will continue selling them until 4 p.m. Friday or until supplies run out.

The Robstown Police Department began their investigation last Friday after Sanchez died from unexplained injuries. Days later, the Nueces County Medical Examiner's Office ruled her death a homicide and her mother, 19-year-old Chasity Herrera, was arrested.

Herrera is now in the Nueces County Jail facing charges of murder and injury to a child by omission.
