DETAILS: Ernesto Alonso GARCIA is a Mexican citizen, but legally resides in the United States as a permanent resident.  Records indicate he entered the United States in 1997. In 2000, he was arrested for Aggravated Assault-Injury to a Child. This was soon followed by charges of Theft, Criminal Mischief, and Possession of a Controlled Substance. In 2002, he was convicted of Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon and sentenced to 7 years in prison. While in prison, GARCIA engaged in fighting and assaulted other offenders. He was released in 2006.

On February 9, 2011, the US Marshals Service and the DEA each issued a warrant for GARCIA's arrest for Marijuana Trafficking.

On March 11, 2011, the Harlingen Police Department responded to a local residence regarding a disturbance. Upon arrival, the officers learned that two males had been stabbed, one of whom died as a result of his injuries. The subsequent investigation developed GARCIA as the suspect. On March 16, 2011, warrants were issued for his arrest for Murder and Aggravated Assault.
