Houston Woman Arrested For Murder Forced 13-Year-Old Son To Dispose Body

Carmen White has been charged with capital murder for the shooting death of her sister Cynthia Cervantes.  

Investigator say White forced her 13-year-old son to help her dispose of the body.

White was arrested back on Feb. 8 on a charge of terroristic threat of a family member and possession of a controlled substance, she was freed on $5,000 bond. 

She never showed up to court. 

Investigators says on April 1st, Cervantes' burned body was found in north Houston. 

White's gray Chevrolet HHR was spotted on camera footage from a nearby business. 

KPRC-TV reports:

“documents indicated a potential motive for the killing: A witness said he knew White made a terroristic threat against her in February when White was arrested and found to have meth in her possession. The witness said White was “very angry” about Cervantes calling police, having to go to jail and her previous car being towed and not being able to recover it from the tow lot. He said he found out about Cervantes’ death from others on April 8, documents show. The witness said White killed Cervantes in retaliation for criminal charges that were filed after Cervantes called the police…
Records show that White’s 13-year-old son said his mother called him away from playing with his 12-year-old brother at the park and asked him to help her. She led him to a dumpster area and told him to move a bagged “unknown” item into her vehicle. Documents said he “reached down and lifted what felt like human legs so he dropped the legs back to the ground.”
Documents say White became upset and demanded that he pick up the body and move it to her vehicle. He again resisted but his mother became “extremely aggressive” and feared what she may do to him so he gave in out of fear for his safety.”
