TEMPLE, Texas (KWTX) A homeless man was re-indicted for murder Wednesday in the death of a local woman and her adult son whom he struck with his truck and then backed over or ran into each of them twice, according to an arrest warrant affidavit.

Darrell Gene Holloway, 61, is charged with murder in the hit-and-run run late on the night of March 2, 2018, that claimed the lives of Maria Marta Garza, 51, and her son Pedro Danny Garza, 33.

A witness told police that he “observed a truck rev its engine and then run over someone” and that he then “observed the truck run over two people and back over or run into each person twice.”

The accident happened at around 11 p.m. March 2 at the intersection of South 1st Street and West Avenue O in Temple.

Holloway, whom jail records describe as homeless, was arrested after returning to the accident scene about 20 minutes later.

He was originally indicted in May 2018.

His name did not appear on the Bell County Jail’s online roster Wednesday.
