Convenience Store Owner Charged with Murder Out on Bond
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -
The convenience store owner charged with murder, after shooting a man who attempted to steal beer from his store, is out on bond.
214th District Court Judge Jose Longoria ordered 52-year old Rodney Duve to wear a GPS ankle monitor as one of the conditions of his bond. Duve appeared in court Wednesday to receive those bond conditions.
Duve was arrested on Saturday night after he shot 39-year old David Garcia as he tried to run away. Garcia had made a beer run earlier in the night and then returned a second time.
After court on Wednesday, Duve had no comment. He is a resident of San Patricio County. He posted bail of $35,000 on Sunday, and was released from jail late Tuesday.
