Prosecutor: Woman to face more charges in Texas boy’s death
HOUSTON (AP) — A prosecutor says a woman arrested in connection with the death of a 5-year-old Houston boy whose body authorities say was kept hidden in a storage unit before being discovered in an East Texas motel will likely face additional charges.
Theresa Raye Balboa has been charged with tampering with evidence, a human corpse, in the death of Samuel Olson.
Balboa was the girlfriend of Samuel’s father, Dalton Olson.
During a court hearing on Monday, Andrea Beall, a prosecutor with the Harris County District Attorney’s Office, said authorities planned to file additional charges against Balboa.
Beall said a murder or a capital murder investigation is pending in the case.
