    The Hidalgo County District Attorney's Office filed paperwork Tuesday to revoke a man's probation after he was charged Saturday with allegedly murdering his girlfriend. Mateo Fabian Garza, 41, was arraigned on a murder charge over the weekend after his girlfriend, 41-year-old Melinda Garza, was found dead in a San Juan home Aug. 16. Melinda's daughter called police to conduct a welfare check on her mother, who family and friends last heard from Aug. 15. The preliminary autopsy report determined Melinda's cause of death to be asphyxia, "with evidence of strangulation and blunt force head trauma," according to a criminal complaint the San Juan Municipal Court released Tuesday.
