Teenager’s Multiple Murder Trial Begins Monday
The teenager involved in a deadly pursuit in 2012 that claimed the lives of nine undocumented immigrants is due in court next week.
Sixteen-year-old Benjamin Rodriguez is set to go on trial on Monday after the deadly crash that took place two years ago on Frontage Road in Palmview.
According to preliminary investigation, Rodriguez was behind the wheel of a van carrying 17 people when it rolled over as it was being followed by U.S. Border Patrol units.
Rodriguez fled the scene but was apprehended the next day.
He will be tried as an adult facing nine counts of murder.
