Plea Deal in the Works for Marvin Palencia

Marvin Palencia‘s attorney is currently engaged in plea discussions with prosecutors in a case that alleges he killed a former co-worker over an affair the man was having with Palencia’s wife.

In interviews with police Palencia has admitted to shooting 36-year-old Jacobo Vazquez, wrapping his body in plastic wrap and duct tape, placing it in a box, and dumping that box along the roadway.

The case against Palencia has not been indicted by a grand jury. Attorneys in the case, in court Friday for a felony status hearing, told Judge Jackson that they are discussing a plea agreement and may be able to bring one to the court before April 8, the next court date set in the case.
