Abilene woman failed to show up in court for murder plea hearing

ABILENE, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) – An Abilene woman accused of being part of a group that killed a man during a New Year’s Eve robbery is now wanted after she failed to appear in court.

Rodaeshia Hines, charged with murder and aggravated robbery in connection with the December 31, 2019 shooting death of David Devora, did not show up for her scheduled plea deal in Taylor County on Friday.

A warrant for her arrest has now been issued and her bail has been increased to $750,000.

Hines is one of five suspects charged in the murder.

Tyree Neal, Creshawn Howard and Michael Wright-Collazo are also charged with murder and aggravated robbery, and the alleged mastermind behind the crime, Isaiah Xavier Arredondo, has been charged with murder.

Court documents reveal that Arredondo is the suspect who “knew David Devora and organized the robbery”.

He allegedly told the other four suspects that Devora had valuables and gave them information to carry out the crime.

The documents also state that “a witness heard Arredondo bragging about his involvement in the robbery after Devora’s death.”

The other four suspects accused of being present during the crime were charged in March with aggravated robbery and murder.

However, Howard is the suspect accused of firing the killing shot as he, Wright-Collazo, and Neal went to Devora’s house to steal money from her to break a friend out of jail.

Hines was also present and is accused of being the driver of the getaway.
