An Edinburg man has being blamed for the death of a Hidalgo County detention officer. 26-year-old Baldemar Alvarez was charged with negligent homicide on Saturday at the Hidalgo County Court and issued a $100,000 bond.

Alvarez is the alleged driver that struck Bertha Garza last Friday while driving to work at the intersection of Terry and Rodgers Roads. The Hidalgo County detention officer died hours later at a local hospital.
