    TX - Bexar County woman, 81, burned alive for her Lincoln Town Car

    SAN ANTONIO -- A man who found the body of a beaten and burned 81-year-old woman testified Tuesday in the trial of her accused killer."We figured somebody was camping or something," Rosendo Estrada, a prosecution witness, told jurors in the capital murder trial of 20-year-old Paul Hernandez. "We saw the body."

    Estrada said he made the grisly discovery in December 2001 at the Atascosa County Cemetery.Prosecutors allege Hernandez and two friends beat Elizabeth Tate, 81, after she resisted to give up her car to the men at her Indian Hills home.The men then allegedly threw Tate in the trunk of her car, drove her to the cemetery, beat her and allegedly set her on fire while she was still alive.
