Rico found not guilty of trying to murder son

February 28, 2012

Carlos Rico was the man at the center of a case that shocked the Big Country. In June of 2011, Rico strangled his young son, then dumped him along the side of Interstate 20 in Sweetwater. On Monday, Feb. 27, 2012, 32nd Judicial District Judge Glen Harrison found Rico not guilty of attempted capital murder by reason of insanity.
"It was my position all along that he was not competent to stand trial, but even much more important is he was not sane at the time of offense," said Michael Brown, Rico's attorney.
