D’Lanny Chairez’s mother and Chairez’s son’s father are both serving jail sentences for the murder.
San Antonio – For those who know D’Lanie Chirez, the month of April is considered a day.
In April of 2017, Chairez’s mother, Patricia Floers, pleaded guilty to the murder of her 2-year-old grandson.
In April 2019, Chairez’s infant son, James’s father Matthew Dempsey, pleaded guilty to killing his mother.
Now, in April of 2021, Chirez accused him of leaving his 1-year-old son, who is still missing for almost a month after being arrested.
“She called it last year and said that something is likely to happen next April because something always happens in April,” said Marizole Gomez.
Chirez was arrested in March on charges of leaving his son, James, and had his first hearing, requesting a bail reduction in April. Her arrest comes nearly a week after the San Antonio Police Department requested help to find the mother and her young son, who were reported missing on February 22.
An affidavit for Chirez’s arrest detailed how she told investigators that she wanted to give her child up for adoption because she was not ready to be a mother and that the child “deserved better”. However, court documents state that she was silent about any information about her son’s whereabouts.
A judge initially set her bail at $ 250,000. Shortly afterwards, his lawyer, GI Bill Simmons, filed a motion for bail reduction and another one went to trial.
Defendants may request a trial for an investigation before the judge to ascertain whether they were sufficient probable cause for the arrest to be made. A trial trial can have many consequences, including the release of a defendant if a judge finds that there is not enough evidence to continue the person.
However, while the law allows the state to allow a person to face felony for 90 days, a request for a trial trial may induce the prosecution to receive the case before the trial date of the trial , Which would negate the right to test examination. .
It is unclear whether the case will reach a trial trial. Asked whether he thought the state lacked evidence to keep Charges in custody, Simmons said he did not file a motion for the show.
Magistrate Judge Andrew Caruthers on Tuesday granted the bail reduction request, setting Chairs bail at $ 150,000 and revising the terms of his release should he be granted bail. Simmons told Keynes 5 via phone Tuesday that he would not comment on whether Cheyrez had been less surety, but said he wanted to modify the conditions for his arrest, as he was in the house. Could resist arrest. He should be left for school and work.
With the possibility of charges being dismissed at the trial hearing, Gomez said he hoped that would not happen. He said he believes Chairez is behind bars.
“I don’t like that he’s in trouble, but he brought it on himself,” Gomez said. But if they are simply rejected, then someone is not doing anything right … Obviously, it is the child’s abandonment and he is not producing the child.
“So if they let him go, what are they saying? It’s okay for mothers to go anywhere and leave their children anywhere and walk away? And guess what you’re doing? You will not have any consequences for paying for it. You don ‘t have to show the child anymore because why are we going to take your word for it? Is he trying to tell the public that it is okay to do it? No, I don’t stand by it. And I have to make sure that my voice was heard much bigger than it was right now. “
However, Gomez states that she is struggling, telling Keynes 5 that she will always love Cheyrez regardless of whether or not he has anything. She said that she had written several letters to Charesz and talked to him via phone last week, but Chirez said she was unable to talk about James.
“I told him, ‘How do you think we are doing?” ‘How do you think someone is doing?’ I asked her, ‘For me to help you, I need to help you. Please, you know, just say something, talk, you know, tell us where it is. ‘ she cry. She says, ‘I can’t. I can’t talk about it right now, Tia. I can’t talk to you about it. I am already speaking to you against the advice of my lawyers. ”
Gomez said she spoke to her sister Shire’s mother via phone and Floers said she told investigators she believed Cheyrez could harm James.
Flores has been behind bars for more than 57 years after pleading guilty to murder. Floors told police that he took a bath of boiling water to clean and at the age of 2 his grandson accidentally climbed into the tub. Reports from KENS 5’s sister station, WFAA, note that she waited six days before enlisting the help of the toddler because she felt she could treat the burn by herself using her knowledge as a nursing assistant.
The report states that by the time he asked for help, his teeth were missing, internal bleeding and went into shock. The boy eventually died.
Gomez said, believing James is dead, she now wonders if Shire had anything to do with the death of the 2-year-old boy.
Gomez speculated, “I wonder if my sister was probably charged for an accident that D’Lenny had with her nephew. Because, you know, in that case either, for me – At the time, the one I knew – is not like my sister. She is not that kind of person. But now James is missing here and (Chirez) goes on the run. I wonder: ‘Do you mind your nephew’s death? Had anything to do with it? ‘
“I asked my sister, though, ‘Are you serving time because D’Lanny did something?” “Gomez said.” I said it makes no sense. She likes, ‘I only request a fifth sister. I am not saying anything. ”
Simmons called the allegations leveled by a family member, which he declined to name “basically ridiculous, but more than ridiculous, they are extremely careless.” He said that the person would be “accountable for his or her purposes.”
Gomez said he confronted Cheyrez about Gomez’s whereabouts in February and recorded his encounter. She said that during the conversation, Chirez told her that she had given James a “good family” because she wished he had a better life near her. Father of James- Matthew Dempsey.
Dempsey and a friend, the court records state, killed Dempsey’s mother with a baseball bat after she had gone into a pair robbing her home. He pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 42 years.
Gomez said he pressed Cheyrez for evidence, gave up James for adoption and did so again in his recent communication with Cheyrez.
“I told him. ‘What kind of good family did you get that didn’t see the news or didn’t have social media that they couldn’t bring James forward?” “Said Gomez.” I said, ‘Maybe you should start questioning who you gave him because it doesn’t look right. “
Gomez said she would continue to send Cheyrez letters with photos of James, hoping that she would trigger Chyrez to come forward with information about his whereabouts.
