DALLAS (AP) — A judge has set a $500,000 bond for a 22-year-old man charged in the killing of a transgender woman whose body was found in a Dallas lake.
Ruben Alvarado made an initial court appearance Friday morning after his arrest Thursday. He’s charged with murder in the death of 26-year-old Chynal (shih-NAHL’) Lindsey. Sgt. Warren Mitchell says Dallas police haven’t identified a motive.
Alvarado is being held in the Dallas County Jail. He doesn’t yet have an attorney.
A game warden pulled Lindsey’s body from White Rock Lake on June 1. Police have not released specifics on how she died.
