Gardendale Man Accused of Killing Common Law Wife Appears in Court

ECTOR COUNTY, TX (KWES) -

A Gardendale man, accused of killing his common law wife, appeared in court.

A hearing was held for Danny Munguia on Thursday.

Officials say they're waiting on DNA results to come back to decide on a trial date.

Munguia is facing murder charges.

Last Fourth of July, authorities were called out to a home on Camelia.

That's where they found 22-year-old Alexandra Kennedy dead.

According to the report, Munguia said he called 911 because she wouldn't wake up.

However, deputies say he later confessed that he assaulted Kennedy.
