New D.A. Gonzales wants to review acquittal in dismemberment case

Bexar County District Attorney-elect Joe Gonzales said he will conduct a full investigation into how prosecutors handled the murder trial of Mexican Mafia associate Gabriel Moreno, who was acquitted last week in the beating and suffocation death of a drug dealer in 2014.

In a case already notorious for its gruesome details the victim’s body was dismembered and burned on a barbecue grill and its motley cast of prosecution witnesses, a less sensational legal matter captured the attention of courthouse insiders.
