Arraignment in case today

This should make for an interesting trial.

Arraignment today in Landmark shooting

A pre-trial hearing is set today for a trial involving the slaying of a Hondo woman at the Landmark Lofts apartments.

Daniel Ramos, 36, is scheduled for his arraignment for three counts of tampering/fabricating physical evidence with intent to impair a human corpse after New Braunfels Police officers arrested him July 29, 2009 in connection with the shooting death of his girlfriend, Maria Gallegos, 34, of Hondo.

Ramos is currently out on bond from Comal County Jail after his attorney filed for a $100,000 personal recognizance bond Oct. 29, 2009 after he spent 90 days in jail without being indicted, according to court records.

As part of his bond, Ramos must report to the probation department and not approach or speak to anyone at Landmark Lofts, according to Comal County District Clerk’s office documents.

Ramos was in his Landmark Lofts apartment, where he worked as a maintenance worker, when police arrived and he surrendered after a brief standoff.

Ramos’ arraignment is scheduled for 9 a.m. in the 207th District Court.
