SALISBURY—The man charged in the death of Guillermo Montes-Gonzalez on June 9 arrived back in Salisbury Sunday.
Jose Daniel-Torres Castro was arrested in Kerens, Texas — about 70 miles southeast of Dallas — in mid-June at a traffic stop less than a week after the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office filed a warrant charging him with the murder.
Deputies from the Sheriff’s Office found Montes-Gonzalez lying a cul-de-sac with multiple gunshot wounds at about 1 a.m. on June 9 after responding to a shooting call on Barley Run in western Rowan County.
Montes-Gonzalez, 29, was a cook at DJ’s Restaurant on West Innes Street. He had a wife, Magali Solano Garcia, and three children ages 3, 5 and 11.
Authorities also arrested and charged Castro’s mother, 38-year-old Maria Castro, with accessory to first-degree murder after the fact.
According to investigators, Maria Castro helped her son hide a blue van that belonged to Montes-Gonzalez and gave investigators false information. The van was found by investigators in the Castros’ driveway at 2110 Harrison Road.
Jose Castro is being held without bond.
