    TX - Elizabeth Tate, 81, burned alive, San Antonio, 7 Dec 2001

    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.

    From October 2004:


    A man has been sentenced life in prison for the 2001 kidnapping, robbery and murder of an 81-year-old woman...

    In their closing arguments, prosecutors David Lunan and James Ishimoto said that Hernandez, by his own confession, took a tree branch and beat Elizabeth Paula Tate unconscious after she was set on fire in an Atascosa County cemetery.
