When it came time for White to appear in court on the accusations of making a terroristic threat against a family member and possessing a controlled substance, she failed to do so. White was originally detained on February 8. For this charge, she will likely return to court on Tuesday morning.
The murder charge has no specific court date.
Police said that Cervantes’ charred remains had been discovered in north Houston on April 1.
Authorities were informed by a family member that he had observed White’s peculiar behavior ever since the passing of her sister.
He claimed he observed White’s paranoia and extreme anxiety on April 8 after she kept insisting on trading the car she had purchased on March 5. The air conditioner, according to her, was broken.
On April 1, witnesses saw White’s gray Chevrolet HHR on video from Texas Blending and Warehousing, according to the detectives.
After being shown pictures of the car, the friend of the family was able to identify it as White’s by indicating marks on it, a yellow dent on the driver’s side, and the rear sheet tags.
A substantial amount of blood, according to the records, was found “on an envelope found under the front driver’s side seat and in the rear cargo area.”
The friend also disclosed to law enforcement White’s motivation for killing her sister. According to him, White was enraged by Cervantes’ decision to call the police on her and hoped to take revenge on her sister.
According to court papers, White enlisted the aid of her 13-year-old son to move her sister’s body to her trunk after her ex-boyfriend refused to assist.
The boy claimed that after lifting what appeared to be human legs, he “reached down and dropped the legs on the ground.”
He claimed that his mother became incredibly hostile and that he caved in out of concern for his safety because he was afraid of what she might do to him.
