Conviction in Mario Hernandez case

This just in (last month): Rebeca Nivarez was found guilty of first-degree murder in the presumed death of Mario Rodriguez Hernandez, who’s been missing six years this month from Santa Ana, California. Rebeca was also found guilty of burglary. Mario sold jewelry door to door and the prosecution’s theory was that Rebeca and her then 17-year-old son, Ricardo Dagoberto Diaz-Nivarez, robbed and murdered him. Ricardo fled to Mexico, but he was captured there and extradited to the U.S. He faces trial later this spring.

    Oh, the poor guy. What a terrible end. I’m glad some justice has been done at last.
