Murder suspect pleads not guilty

August 23, 2018

The defense attorney for a man accused of stabbing someone to death in April told a judge Wednesday morning he intends to take the murder case to trial and will not negotiate any deals with the Cameron County District Attorney’s Office.

Nat Perez, who represents Robert Galvan, 37, made the comment to 445th state District Judge Gloria Rincones during an arraignment hearing.

Galvan pleaded not guilty to one count of murder and one count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon Wednesday morning, and waived the reading of the indictment.

“We’re anxious to try this case,” Perez said.

Galvan is accused of stabbing and killing 54-year-old Horacio Eguia and stabbing Brian Scott, who survived, early in the morning of April 11.

A trial is scheduled for Nov. 5.
