By DEBBIE DeLOACH Staff writer
Re-indictments issued Wednesday against two men charged with capital murder now list the names of the murdered man and two robbery victims.
Rodolfo Baiza Hernandez and Jesse Garibay Jr., both of San Antonio, had already been indicted twice on capital murder charges since the gangland-style shootings of five Mexican nationals occurred on March 7
off FM 1863.
The first set of indictments only listed the dead man as Victor Cervan, and the second set included his full name, Victor Manuel Serrano Cervan.
But a third set of indictments became necessary after a pre-trial hearing for Hernandez on Monday Defense attorney John Chunn asked 274th District Court Judge Fred Moore to quash the indictment against Hernandez, because the name- of the robbery victim (or victims) wasn't printed en the indictment. Chunn also sought to
have the case dismissed, and Hernandez discharged from jail.
Judge Moore agreed to quash the indictment, but said he did not find it to be ‘fundamentally defective.” He ordered Hernandez be bound over” until a grand jury could re-indict him.
The judge s ruling also applied to Garibay s case, which was scheduled Monday for pre-trial matters after Hernandez
A Comal County Grand Jury re-indieted the pair
Wednesday, and the new set of indictments list Cervan and one of the survivors, Adolpho Mata, as robbery victims.
Mata, 16, was shot In the right temple, hand and under his arm. Cervan died hours after the attack with one gunshot wuund to his upper J cst and three to the heck-throat area.

WASHINGTON (AP) Republican Congressman Tom Ixieffler has taken a giant step toward a race for governor next year by hiring the man who engineered Phil Gramm’s successful campaign for the U.S. Senate last year.
Richard McBride has been named director of Ixieffler’s committee “to explore the possibility of a gubernatorial bid in Texas,” a spokeswoman in Loeffler’s congressional office said Wednesday.
Democratic incumbent Gov. Mark White is up for re-election next year.
“Richard McBride is one of the top political hands in Texas and I’m proud to have him on my team,” Ixieffler, R-Hunt, said in a statement released by his office.
McBride, who lives in Round Rock near Austin, could not be reached for comment Wednesday afternoon. Before running Gramm’s campaign, he was a political coordinator for the National Republican Party.
Ixieffler was elected to Congress in 1978. Before that, he was a congressional liaison officer under President Ford and chief legislative counsel to then-Senator John Tower.
