Incident at 13426 Abide
January 23, 2006 -- Charges
have been filed against a suspect arrested in the fatal beating
of his father at 13426 Abide on January 17, 2006 about 8 p.m.
The victim is identified as Zeferino Cisneros,
70, of 13426 Abide.
The suspect, Manuel Cisneros (H/m, DOB: 06-13-70),
has been charged with injury to the elderly (serious bodily injury)
in the 209th State District Court.
HPD Homicide Division Officer M. Ybanez reported:
Zeferino Cisneros and his son became involved
in an altercation. During this fight, the son beat his father
severely. Mr. Cisneros was transported to Memorial Hermann Hospital
with life threatening injuries, from which he eventually lapsed
into a coma and died. He was pronounced dead at the hospital on
January 22 about 1:40 p.m.
There was no scene investigation at the time
of the assault because the family did not report it until the
next day. As a result of the follow up investigation, the son
was charged with injury to the elderly (serious bodily injury).
The case will be reviewed by the Harris County District Attorney's
office for possible modification of charges.
