    1. I STRONGLY “AGREE”…!! Veronica Garcia should also be in custody for orchestrating this horrific devastating & malicious tragedy. Veronica needs to be accountable for what she’s done..!!

      1. VERONICA GARCIA SHOULD BE HELD GUILTY OF ORGANIZING THE HOMICIDE OF THE ONE AND ONLY MICHAEL TOVAR.
        AND GUILTY FOR BEING SUCH Awful EXAME OF HUMAN BEING TO HER KIDS

        1. suspicious so many deaths around her like her house that burned and killed her roomate

  1. If you know Veronica Garcia was behind this this, I hope you call the detective. It would be a shame to have Ruelas take the blame for it…

      1. UPDATE** Had Rueles fought the case in court and lost he was would have been facing 50yrs in prison… (*Sarcasm** NOW….) Because the verdict was ‘just’ in a judicial system of the government formed for the people by the people Rueles guilty plea dropped 43 years off an initial 50 he was initially facing… WOW, Someone, ANYONE PLEASE tell Me where is the justice here…?? 39 year old Michael Tovar had his life horrifically STOLEN away from His Family, Friends all His Loved Ones by the hands of this MURDERER Rueles. Actions carried out all behind some Fake Ass BS LIE that some low life no moral possesing female Veronica Garcia falsely stated to the police, investigators & all involved with the court proceedings. Which ultimately the defendants (Ruelas)’ attorney utilized in the defense of Rueles stating that “She Veronica Garcia was fearful of Michael Tovar”

        LYING BITCH…!! If she was scared of Him then why the Eff did she keep calling and harassing him to come over..?? BULLSHIT…!! 7years is NOT a “just” verdict in all actuality it’s a JOKE along with no filing of criminal charges ever filed on Veronica Garcia the individual who orchestrated this entire crime
        I find absolutely sickening…!! The judicial system has failed us I can only look forward to the Karma that is headed for these malicious malovelent individuals and their actions that have affected so many after loosing Our Star Our Friend, Son, Brother, Uncle, Cousin, Godfather (Angel) Michael Tovar..!!
