His job was to uphold the law, but a Harris County Precinct 6 reserve deputy constable is now on the other side of the law, KPRC Local 2 reported Monday. Angel Erevia, 31, had a daughter, Angelina, who just turned 1 on Sunday. Now she's left without a father. "He was a sweet person," said Erevia's mother, Santos Rodriguez... "I don't have no alternative but to terminate him," Harris County Precinct 6 Constable Victor Trevino said.... "He seemed like a family guy, a hard working guy," said Trevino. "I was shocked." Castillo is no longer a peace officer. Instead, he's charged with murder. "They need to put him away. He took a life," said Sanchez. Castillo made an arrangement with HPD to turn himself in. He'll be held on $100,000 bond. HPD said he already admitted to the shooting in a written statement, but said it was self-defense. [Full article here]
