UPDATE: Simon Lopez back in court

UPDATE: Accused baby killer, Simon Lopez, was back in court today. He still does not want a court appointed attorney. His mother will be getting him a lawyer today.

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - Accused baby killer, Simon Lopez, was arraigned today in a Smith County court room.

Lopez is charged with capital murder for the death of one-year-old Jeremy Silva in November. U.S. Marshals located Lopez in Queretar, Mexico last week where authorities say he was staying with family.

Lopez was taken into custody in Queretaro and transferred to Houston where he was charged with capital murder.

The Smith County District Attorney has not decided if he will seek the death penalty in this case. Simon will remain in the Smith County Jail on a 2 million dollar bond.

Silva's mother says she is happy Lopez is no longer on the run, "My baby is finally going to get justice."
