Court documents state Adam Byrd, 23, has been accused of shooting and killing his girlfriend, Jade Alyssa Alvarez, 22, on April 6, just five days after he allegedly committed two aggravated robberies, KSAT reported.
Around 6:30 a.m. on April 6, officers found the body of Alvarez on Capitol Avenue in San Antonio with multiple gunshot wounds.
Five days later, on April 11, police said they spoke with a witness who was with Alvarez before the fatal shooting occurred. The witness said Alvarez and Byrd were in a relationship and Alvarez was talking with Byrd on the phone prior to the deadly incident, court records state.
According to the witness, Byrd asked for Alvarez to be dropped off on Capital Avenue and the witness complied and dropped her off between 10:30 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. on April 5. Alvarez was found dead by police several hours later.
The witness identified Byrd, who had an active arrest warrant for the aggravated robbery, from a photo provided by police.
