Illegal Alien Charged in Gruesome Murder of Elderly Woman

An illegal alien living in Texas has been charged with capital murder after allegedly stabbing an elderly woman to death inside her home.

“Marco Cobos, 19, allegedly used multiple knives to stab Etta Nugent to death for about 40 minutes to an hour, according to the charging documents which prosecutors read aloud during his first appearance in court Wednesday morning,” according to The Houston Chronicle. “The medical examiner reported finding more than 13 stab wounds on the 75-year-old woman’s body.”

Cobos is a Mexican national is being held without bond and federal immigration authorities have placed a detainer on him. According to prosecutors, he confessed to the heinous crime.

He was allegedly living in a stolen truck, which he asked Nugent to help him fix. Due to her age, she could not help. Witnesses said that the truck was parked outside Nugent’s home before the slaying. She was found dead after she did not answer phone calls, or visit her husband in a nursing home as scheduled.

Nugent’s family released a statement about her murder.

“The family of Etta Nugent is heartbroken and in absolute shock at the senseless tragedy that unfolded before them this week,” it said. “Etta was a kind, gentle and generous woman who lived her life with unwavering dedication to her faith, family and friends. To see her life end in such a tragic, evil matter is simply unexplainable.”

The brutal slaying comes as progress on the issue of border security has neared a standstill in Washington, D.C.
