Three of the Sutherland's robbery suspects were on the district court docket call Tuesday morning in front of Judge Robert Pate.

Andres Manuel Garza, Aaron Adrian Garza and Michael Andres Castro were on the docket call, but only Aaron and Michael were physically present.

On Oct. 21, the three men and a 16-year-old boy allegedly robbed Sutherland's. The men walked into the business with masks and guns drawn as the juvenile held a lady outside the business at gunpoint.

Andres was recognized by an employee and arrested the same day of the incident.

Through the Alice Police Department's investigation, Castro and Aaron were later arrested.

Andres is charged with two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and aggravated robbery.

Aaron with his lawyer Mark Gonzalez asked the judge to reduce his bond on the arson charge. The bond for the charge was set at $100,000.

Aaron told Judge Pate he and his family could not afford to make such a high bond amount, said District Attorney officials.

Judge Pate granted the bond reduction from $100,000 to $50,000.

Aaron is also charged with obstruction or retaliation, two counts of aggravated robbery, tamper or fabricate physical evidence with intent to impair. He has a total bond of $1,110,000.

Castro was charged with two counts of robbery and set a bond amount of $100,000. He is represented by Attorney Nathan Fugate.

According to district attorney officials, Judge Pate recused himself from the cases when he learned Castro and Andres Garza were charged by the Jim Wells County Sheriff's Department with two counts of capital murder each for the murders of 50-year-old Marcelino Guerra and 53-year-old Robert Mata.

Guerra and Mata were killed on Oct. 20 on County Road 464 near Green Acres.

Sheriff officials believe Castro and Garza killed the two men in order to steal their gray 2001 Chevrolet Silverado.

Investigators found the stolen vehicle engulfed in flames the day after the murders on County Road 148 near San Diego.

Also on the docket call was Amador Garza Sr. for a hearing status.

Amador Garza Sr. is the father of Andres and Aaron Garza. 

Amador was charged with two counts of tampering with evidence. He was released from the JWC jail on Nov. 20.

As of Thursday afternoon, Castro and Aaron remain at the JWC jail. Andres is in custody at an undisclosed, offsite location.
