West Valley Shooting Suspect Appears in Court

The suspect in the fatal shooting of Jose Silva makes his first appearance before a Yakima County Court judge.

Walter Garcia is suspected of shooting and killing Silva earlier this week and leaving his body by a home in West Valley.

Silva’s body was discovered by a cable technician earlier this week.

Court documents state two witnesses came forward to police following the murder, which led to his Garcia’s arrest.

Garcia is facing second degree murder charges and is being held on half a million dollars bail.
