CAMERON, Texas (KWTX) The bond set for a suspect charged with capital murder in the death of a 20-month-old Rockdale girl has been increased from $750,000 to $3 million, Milam County prosecutors said Tuesday.
Shawn Vincent Boniello, who’s also known as Shayla Angeline Boniello, 30, remains in the Milam County Jail.
Boniello identifies as a transgender woman, according to Rockdale police.
Boniello is charged in the Dec. 3, 2018 death of Patricia Ann Rader.
Officers, firefighters and paramedics responded to the girl’s home at around 5:45 p.m. Dec. 3 after receiving a report of an unresponsive child.
Paramedics performed CPR at the scene, but were unable to revive the girl.
Boniello was arrested that night and was initially charged with child abandonment/endangerment, but on Dec. 4, 2018 was also named in a complaint charging capital murder.
Prosecutors have said they will seek the death penalty.
A trial date has not been set.
State District Judge John Youngblood raised the bond on Friday.
