GOLIAD — Three defendants connected to the 2019 death of a Goliad father are scheduled to be in court in June, according to court records. One of the defendants faces a murder charge.

Pretrial hearings for Jade Culpepper, 27, April Beveridge, 48, and Jose Hernandez, 20, are scheduled. The hearings come after Daniel Mendoza, 20, was handed a maximum 99-year prison sentence by a Goliad County jury on Tuesday after he was convicted of murder for the June 2019 shooting death of Nathan Cortinas.
