Boyfriend Sought In Killing Of Woman and Daughter
HOUSTON (AP) — Police are searching for a 23-year-old man who's wanted for questioning in the shooting deaths of a woman and her baby daughter in their Houston home.
Authorities said in a statement Monday that it's believed Jonathan Figueroa is heading to the Mexican border in a maroon Ford Taurus.
Figueroa has not been charged in the matter and police say he's seen only as a person of interest.
Twenty-six-year-old Veronica Mercado and her daughter were shot multiple times Friday. Mercado was found still holding the child, who would have turned 2 later this month.
The home's front door had been forced open.
Police said earlier that they were seeking Mercado's boyfriend and that the two had a history of domestic violence. They declined to confirm Monday if Figueroa is the boyfriend.
