Rapper dies in Corpus Christi, bandmate charged

- Associated Press - Monday, February 3, 2014

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) - A member of the San Antonio-based rap group the Hooligan Boyz has been charged in the death of a bandmate after an apparent fight at a Corpus Christi hotel.

Nueces County jail records show 31-year-old Christopher Garza of San Antonio was being held Monday on a murder charge. Jail records had no information on an attorney for Garza, whose bond is $200,000.

The Hooligan Boyz performed Friday night at a Corpus Christi club.

Capt. Michael Alanis (AL'-uh-nees) says police early Saturday responded to a fight at a hotel. Police say 31-year-old Miguel Silva of San Antonio was unresponsive and was pronounced dead at hospital.

A coroner on Monday had no preliminary cause of death for Silva. Toxicology results are pending.

Police are talking to witnesses and checking hotel security video.
