Convicted murderer to face new charges for jail inmate's slaying

EDINBURG — A man who previously admitted to strangling his girlfriend with an Xbox controller cord was formally arraigned Friday for allegedly killing a fellow inmate while awaiting his trial.
Prosecutors believe Samuel Rene Garcia, 33, of McAllen, delivered a fatal punch that killed Benny Chapman Harper during a fistfight that broke out Oct. 30, 2006, at the Hidalgo County Jail.
