GALVESTON — A woman stabbed to death during a domestic dispute became the city’s fourth homicide victim this year.
Jackie Bergara, 53, was found dead of a knife wound Sunday, and her boyfriend, Richard Beverly, 44, was charged with murder, authorities said Monday.
Bond for Beverly was set at $250,000, but he remained hospitalized Monday after overdosing on pills, Galveston police Lt. Michael Gray said.
A relative of Beverly’s called a police dispatcher about 4:20 a.m. Sunday. Police arrived at 3002 69th St. and saw Beverly through the apartment window, but he wouldn’t answer the door, Gray said.
