SAN ANTONIO — A San Antonio woman has been arrested in Edwards County for a murder that happened eight years ago.

Rosa Yareli Medina, 33, was arrested for first degree murder for her alleged role in the killing of Inez Santa Cruz in September of 2012. Her bond was set for $1,000,000.

Troy Ray Ryder, also from San Antonio, was arrested days after the killing and plead guilty to capital murder, taking 75 years in prison instead of the death penalty. After an extensive investigation, authorities have arrested and charged Medina as well.

"Although these type of cases may take an extended amount of time to complete, this shows the relentless pursuit for justice on behalf of our victims, their families and the community of Edwards County," said Sheriff Pamela Elliott in a press release.
