Indictments in Deckard Murder

By Bill O'Neil

A man and woman accused in the murder of San Antonio Police Officer Bobby Deckard have been indicted in Atascosa County. 

"I have been cross designated with Rena Pena--who is the District Attorney in Atascosa County--to assist in this prosecution" said Bexar County District Attorney Susan Reed, who will serve as co-counsel in the Atascosa County case. 

Both 32-year old Shawn Puente and 28-year old Jenevive Ramos have been indicted on counts of capital murder and aggravated assault on a paece officer. Each also faces the potential of attempeted capital murder indictments in Wislon County--where they are accused of firing on a Poth Police Officer. 

Investigators said the pair had been running from police after a robbery in December--firing on Officer Deckard after crossing in to Atascosa County.   

Any decision on pursuing the death penalty will be made by the Atascosa County District Attorney.
