A Nacogdoches teen accused of killing a 72-year-old woman was held in lieu of $2 million bail Tuesday afternoon
Jared Delgado, 18, is charged with murder, a first degree felony, in the death of Carole Favro at her home in the 2400 block of East Starr Avenue.
Police and paramedics were called to the home around 7:30 a.m. Sunday where they found Favro who was apparently “the victim of an assault with a weapon,” according to the daily activity log released by Nacogdoches Police Department.
“First responders attempted life saving measures, and she was transported to the closest hospital. The victim was later pronounced deceased at the hospital,” police spokesman Sgt. Brett Ayres said in an email.
Delgado was found at the property, and “investigators developed probable cause during their investigation to charge the suspect with murder,” Ayres said.
Further details in the case including a possible motive and whether Favro and Delgado knew one another were not immediately available.
The Favro property was also the site of an October 2019 standoff between police and Travis Lane Favro, who police say barricaded himself inside a home before surrendering around 6 hours later.
He was indicted in federal court in November 2019 for possession of a firearm by a prohibited person.
Police initially said Travis Favro had threatened family members, but his father told The Daily Sentinel that no one was in danger during the standoff.
The federal case is slowly making its way though the court system. Travis Favro was ruled competent to stand trial in a July 21 hearing. Jury selection is expected to begin Sept. 13 in that case.
