Charge upgraded in slaying of San Angelo girl, 5

Posted: Updated:

SAN ANGELO, Texas (AP) - A West Texas man faces a capital murder charge after allegedly breaking into his ex-girlfriend's home and fatally stabbing her 5-year-old daughter.

Tom Green County jail records show 23-year-old Isidro Miguel Delacruz Jr. of San Angelo was being held Thursday on $1 million bond.

Online jail records don't list an attorney for Delacruz, who was arrested following Tuesday's attack and initially charged with murder.

San Angelo police on Wednesday said the charge was upgraded in the death of Naiya Villegas. Police say Delacruz also allegedly attacked the child's mother and her grandmother at the residence but both women have injuries not believed to be life-threatening.

Police have not released a possible motive for the attacks.

Investigators say Delacruz is not related to the slain girl.
