DALLAS (AP) - Texas authorities say a supervisor for the U.S. Border Patrol killed a woman and her 1-year-old child before calling 911 claiming to have discovered the bodies near a city park.

Twenty-eight-year-old Ronald Anthony Burgos Aviles was being held without bond Tuesday in the Webb County jail on two counts of capital murder. Laredo police spokesman Joe Baeza says Burgos Aviles was identified as a person of interest within an hour of the 911 call Monday, but Baeza declined to elaborate.

Baeza said Tuesday that 27-year-old Grizelda Hernandez and her son, Dominick Alexander Hernandez, likely were killed Monday near the park. He says Burgos Aviles and the woman were in a romantic relationship.

Online jail records do not indicate an attorney for Burgos Aviles to answer the allegations.
